Have you ever seen the very first website on the internet?

I know the answer to the question for most readers will be No, but now you have the opportunity to view how the number one webpage in the world look like,The very first born our of millions of sites. According to Netcraft's March 2012 website survey discovered 644,275,754 active websites on the internet, to be precise. Twenty years ago today CERN published a statement that made the World Wide Web freely available to everyone. To celebrate that moment in history, CERN is bringing the very first website back to life at its original URL.Can you believe the site Google page-rank is 7.
Have you every seen the very first website on the internet?
The URL of the site was initially redirected to the root info.cern.ch site.But,because we all know cool URIs don’t change,CERN promise to bring back the first webpage and they brought it back to life Well, sort of anyway. The site has been reconstructed from an archive hosted on the W3C site, so what you’re seeing is a 1992 copy of the first website. Sadly this is, thus far, the earliest copy anyone can find, though the team at CERN is hoping to turn up an older copy. Try to view the source of the first webpage. You’ll find quite a few things about early HTML that have long since changed — like the use of
<header>

instead of
<head>

or the complete absence of a root
<html>

tag. There’s also a trace of Berners-Lee’s famous NeXT machine in the
<nextid n="55"> tag.</nextid></html></head></header>

If you’d like to see the very first webpage Tim Berners-Lee and the WWW team ever put online, point your browser to http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.
