How does the web work?

2 min readJun 5, 2021

Welcome to my third blog, and as you may know, I am a complete novice when it comes to web development. I wanted to tell you about my experience. Let’s get this party started.

As it is a much confusing topic, but I made it easier to understand how the web works.

How does web works

Working of Web as follow:-

  • When you connect to the internet, you do it through an Internet Service Provider (ISP). To visit a website, you enter a domain name or web address into your browser, such as google.com, bbc.co.uk, or microsoft.com.
  • Then your computer communicates with Domain Name System (DNS) servers, which are a network of servers. These function similarly to phone books in that they inform your computer of the IP address associated with the requested domain name. (An IP address consists of up to 12 digits separated by periods or full stops. Every device connected to the internet has its own IP address, which functions similarly to a phone number.)
  • The unique number given back by the DNS server to your computer enables your browser to communicate with the web server ( that hosts the website you requested. A web server is a computer that is always connected to the internet and is configured specifically to send web pages to users.)
  • The web server then returns the requested page to your web browser.
  • As a result, the Web or Internet works.

I hope you understand how the Internet, also known as the Web, works. You can find out more by Googling it. If there is any problem then let me know in the comments down. So that’s it for now; I’ll see you in the next blog.
