What is Internet ? How Does Internet Work?
What is Internet ?
The Internet is a maelstrom. The Internet is the largest and busiest network in the world. The Internet is called ‘interjal’ in Hindi. If you say simple words, internet connecting between the world’s computers is just the Internet. When this network is installed, we become part of a vast network called Global Network and can get any information available on any computer connected to this network in our computer.
Every computer connected to the Internet has a different identity. This unique identification is called an IP address. The IP address is a unique set of mathematical numbers (like 220.127.116.11) that tell the computer’s location.
IP Address is given a name by Domain Name Server, which represents that IP address. As such https://www.equestion.site is a Domain Name that is the name of a computer location. Which connects the domain name server to an IP address.
How Does Internet Work?
Now the question is how do we join this huge internet? What is the meaning of Internet work? How do computers connect to the Internet? The truth is that computers are interconnected in the Internet, and it is just like our telephone is interconnected. We have to get an Internet connection from ‘Internet Service Provider’ (Internet service provider) to connect your computer to the Internet. Because ISPs are connected to the Internet. This gives us a way to connect to the Internet. When we get this connection, we can connect our computer to the Internet. This connection is accessed through Cabel or Wireless in your computer. When we are connected to the Internet, this process is called ‘Online’.
Some of you might have been thinking that there is a cloud above us which has all the Internet stores in the Internet and the Internet runs on it. But let us tell you that there is nothing like that. The entire internet does not even run from the satellite left by us.
It used to run before the satellite but the technique was very old and in this, the data was also a slow loading. But our engineers discovered the AC technology in which we are fasting today, this technology is Optical Fibers Cable.
It is true that we have installed Optical Fiber Cable with a length of more than 8 lakh kilometers in the sea, which has 90% of our internet usage. The same optical fiber cable is laid in the sea, with less loss and less cost.
The cable is laid in the sea in which the bigger ships also run and sometimes the anchor of the ship also damages the Optical Fiber Cable, something that happened in Egypt on January 13, 2008, due to which 70% of Egypt’s Internet Was closed.
This problem has also been resolved. A number of teams have been formed that monitor Optical Fiber Cable at sea 24 hours. If there is a loss in any Optical Fiber Cable, then these teams fix it as quickly as possible.
