Web 1.0 News

The initial version of the web, known as Web 1.0 — or Web1 — lasted from 1989 to 2005. Tim Berners-Lee, who created the World Wide Web, claimed that the original version of the web was “read-only.” There was minimal opportunity for customers to share information or for content creation, and there was no way to communicate with a website.

Web 1.0 represents an era of static pages solely used for content delivery, such as websites like Britannica Online. As a result, Web 1.0 played a largely passive role and was mainly regarded as a web of information connections.

HyperText Markup Language (HTML), Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) were the basic web protocols apart of Web 1.0 technologies. However, humans (the web readers) do not have content compatible with machines; instead, the webmaster alone was in charge of informing visitors and overseeing the website’s content. Furthermore, there was no web console accessible for managing dynamic events. A shift in how the internet is used, known as Web 2.0, came next to address these issues.
