Surfing the Web...

There are 3 things you need to surf the World Wide Web (WWW).  

  • First, you must have a computer that has a modem.  A modem is kind of like a telephone, it allows your computer to dial and connect to the Internet.  

  • Second, your computer must have a Browser!  An example of a Browser would be Internet Explorer or Netscape.  The Browser allows you to see the information and graphics on the Internet.

  • Third, you must have an Internet Service Provider.  This is known as an ISP.  The most commonly used ISP are companies like AOL, Earthlink, CompuServe.  In order to connect to the Internet you have to pay for the service.  Just like if you have cable TV, your parents have to pay for order to connect to the Internet you have to pay.  Usually, this will cost you around 19.95 a month.
