Happy 25th Birthday to the first Website

Posted August 2016 by Lee Haskings

This time 25 years ago on the 6th August 1991, the first website was uploaded to the World Wide Web. Now it's estimated that there are 1.06 billion websites online and yes, of course there's a website to monitor that!

First Website

The first ever website. Thankfully things got better from here onwards!

Who Created The First Website?

Sir Tim Berners-Lee (creator of the World Wide Web) published the first website about the World Wide Web project itself. He announced the website’s creation on several hypertext enthusiast internet discussion groups, simultaneously debuting the Web as a publicly available service. This date is described in history as ‘The Birth of the World Wide Web’.

The first image uploaded on the internet (1992). Now there's 300 million photo uploads to Facebook in a single day (hopefully there's at least one better than this one).
