Q: What is the difference between the internet and the World Wide Web (www)?

A: Many people use the terms internet and World Wide Web interchangeably when in fact they are two distinctly different things.

The internet (Net) is a global network of computers that communicate with one another. It is over the internet that e-mails are sent and we access content. Think of the internet as a road.

The World Wide Web is the content (information) that is contained on the internet. It is the millions of pages of information and images stored on the internet. Think of the World Wide Web as the car that runs over the road.
