Internet Basics

For new customers, the variety and complexity of the Internet can be daunting at first, but with some experience and a little help, even the most basic Netizen can quickly become adept at using the main services of the 'Net. That is the goal of this section, to provide a basic overview of some of the most frequently used parts of the Internet and hopefully allow you, the individual, to use them efficiently. Where possible, software links are included so you can grab the applications necessary to let you use these various parts of the Internet.

World-Wide Web
Probably the best known part of the Internet, the web is one of the most efficient methods of dispersing information with its system of hyperlinks.

E-mail is certainly the most often used part of the Internet, enabling people to quickly and efficiently send electronic messages to anyone with an email account.

File Transfer Protocol
FTP is the easiest way to transfer large files from one computer to another, no matter how great the distance.

Newsgroups are a great way to find information on any topic. With over 57,000 to choose from, there is surely one that will pique your interest.
