Communication would route around the affectedarea and stay alive.This network called ARPA net quickly grew. This primary service onARPA net was electronic mail. It was the first time that emails actuallycame into use. In very short time, students began linking their owncampus networks into ARPA net, using a well defined protocol TCP-IP.This joining of networks was also called inter-networking, and soon theentire setup was called INTERENT.In 1973, ARPA net allowed international bodies to the net, and afterthat there was no looking back.

This server as anaddress on the electronic message, and the send command has the e-mail system deliver the message to the second person.In the Internet community, people believe in sharing their ideas andopinions with others. This is so mainly because it is an open forum thathas government and no restrictions at all. This policy of openness hasled Internet-citizens to put up an enormous variety of hypertextdocument on the web. This has led to information of every kind beingavailable to any body who wants it.
