No. The internet is a global, physical network of millions of computers which can communicate by sending and receiving packets of data. The Internet supports many different communication protocols for different applications: e-mail, file transfer, domain resolution, remote terminals and hypertext.

The World Wide Web is just one of those applications; it is based on sending and receiving packets coded using the hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP). The Internet as we know it began to take shape in the 1970s. The World Wide Web was invented by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989.
