And is it still in the same way it was first made online? Can you access it? The answer is YES! .. Where? lets check it out!
About The First Webpage!
The first web page went live in December, 1990. It was dedicated to information on the World Wide Web project and was made by Tim Berners-Lee. It ran on a NeXT computer at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN.
The first web page address was http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.
It outlined how to create Web pages and explained more about hypertext.
Here’s what it looked like in 1992 (below). No screenshots were taken of the site before then.
Look how simple it is! No CSS, graphics etc! Just simple HTML code that links various webpages to each other, that is what the basic idea behind its name- World Wide Web: Its a web of linking pages that is spread throughout the World!
Here’s a tweet last year from CERN on 25th Anniversary of the first webpage!
