Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

TCP/IP World Wide Web and Hypertext Overview and Concepts

The World Wide Web expands the concepts of messaging beyond the limits of simple text file transfer of e-mail, FTP and Usenet. Its power is in its combination of hypertext, a system that allows related documents to be linked together, its rich document format that supports not just text but graphics and multimedia, and the special protocol that allows efficient movement of those media. The result is a powerful system that once introduced, caught on almost immediately amongst everyone from large companies to individuals, and in a few short years came to dominate all other applications on the Internet.

In this section, I take a high-level, summarized look at the concepts behind the World Wide Web. I begin with a short overview and history of the Web and hypertext, and a discussion of the components that comprise the Web system. I briefly describe the documents and media used on the Web and explain the importance of the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). I conclude with an overview of how documents are addressed on the Web using Uniform Resource Locators (URLs).
