The internet, is actually a very large network of connected computers. Nobody owns the internet. It is nearly impossible to shut down the internet. The internet was invented sometime in the 1960’s but it was only made accessible to the public sometime in the 1990’s. There are more than a billion websites on the internet. The first website to have ever been created is still online. Not everything that is on the internet can be found through search engines. Sometimes, web sites are sometimes intentionally prevented from appearing on search engine results and some of these are used to commit crimes like to buy and sell illegal drugs or pets.
