British physicist, Tim Berners-Lee, invented the World Wide Web at CERN in 1989. He began the first website to document the project. It’s funny to think that the first website was about the WWW project itself. The website described the basic features of the web; how to access other people’s documents and how to set up your own server.

This is it:

On April 30 1993, the web was available on a royalty-free basis. The software was free for anyone to use and remains so today. Web usage exploded as people started setting up their own servers and websites. Twenty years later, there are an estimated 630 million websites online. Wow!
