Way back in 1995, I was a freshman at university. I had this new thing called “The Internet” at my fingertips.
It was cool, but I wanted to know how it worked. I asked someone, and they wouldn’t answer the question – mostly because they couldn’t answer!
Today, everyone knows and uses the internet, but people keep asking me questions about the basic concepts that make it go.
So, I figured it was about time to give a basic intro to how the internet actually works, including a simplified discussion of networks, IP addresses, ports, protocols, DNS, bandwidth, latency, and more!
Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds.

Almost 2000 pages of highly-detailed, ridiculously complex explanations! YAY!

Nice work Scottie! Good explanation of the basics of the Internet for the non-technical. I’ll definitely use this one as a refer-to!
