The Internet is a worldwide system of networked computer networks that has transformed the way communication systems work. The beginnings of the Internet are linked to the creation of the ARPANET, in 1969, a computer network controlled by the US Department of Defense. Today, the Internet connects billions of computers around the world in a non-hierarchical way. The Internet is a product of a combination of media, computers and telecommunications. However, the Internet is not only a product of technological progress, but also of social and political processes, including the scientific community, politics and the military. From its roots as a non-industrial and non-business environment related to the scientific community, the Internet has very quickly spread to the world of trade and business. However, it took almost 30 years for the Internet to impose itself as a technological innovation that is constantly transforming society and the economy. The Internet is a publicly available global packet data network that connects computers and computer networks using Internet Protocol (IP). It is a “network of all networks” consisting of millions of home, academic, business, and government networks that share information and services with each other such as email, chat and file transfer, and related World Wide Web pages and documents. The term internet means a network within a network, or an internal connection between multiple computers. Structurally, there are small networks that interconnect, and thus form this structure. The Internet is increasingly being called a global information network (a large international-global database). In 2014, the number of Internet users exceeded 3 billion or 43.6% of the world's population, which is two thirds of users who came from the richest countries, 78.0% of the population from Europe uses the Internet, and 57.4% from the United States. The amount of information that these servers have is huge, and it is difficult to estimate and show realistically how much it really is.
