Many people use the terms Internet and World Wide Web (or Web) interchangeably, but the fact is that the two are separate but related.
Internet - is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to facilitate data transmission and exchange. In short, it’s a network of networks.
Web (World Wide Web) - is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed via the Internet. With a web browser, one can view web pages that may contain text, images, videos, and other multimedia and navigate between them via hyperlinks.
Concluding: The Web is just a portion of the Internet, although a large portion, but the two terms are not synonymous and should not be confused.
