Berners-Lee & Cailliau also designed the first web browser, editor and web server. 6 August 1991, the worlds first website was online it explained what the world wide web was and how you could make your own web server.
"I just had to take the hypertext idea and connect it to the TCP and DNS ideas and â€” ta-da! â€” the World Wide Web."
