Military use.

Initially it was invented for security agencies (specially military) communication and correspondence. It was the most secure platform as nobody knew anything about it. So, it was easy for security persons to share information with different stakeholders.

The internet was invented in 1969, it was developed by the ARPA (advanced research projects agency). hope i was of any help :)

The most likely answer you are looking for is ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network).

The US Department of Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) invented the internet in the 1960s. However, Al Gore(D) lied during a campaign and claimed he "created" it.

I believe it was called Arpanet (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). The original idea was to connect a bunch of computers on different universities, so they could share research.

The Internet was created by a government agency called ARPA, now known as DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) in 1969. At that time, the Internet was known as ARPANET.Additional answerA Brit called Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wibe Web in March 1989 and did the first 'transmission' of hypertext transfer protocol (http) the next year.

2005-12-08: The Internet evolved from ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network), an effort supported by the United States Department of Defense. The developers of ARPANET wanted to make communication between separate computer systems at various universities and research laboratories more convenient. See also Who invented the Internet? and Wikipedia's ARPANET entry.Contrary to popular belief, while the Internet was designed to survive the loss of various parts of the network, it was never intended to survive a nuclear war. See the Wikipedia ARPANET entry for more information about this urban legend.

Initially, the modern internet was created on a computer, comprised of a text file, for research. See http://walthowe.com/navnet/history.html

The Internet was originally developed by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities. Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork). The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization. For purists, it may be worth noting that the term "internet" implies more than one network, the ARPAnet was a single network and multiple networks were not actually connected until somewhat later (e.g., NSFnet), creating an "internet".

Al The Internet was invented in the United States during the late 1950s to the 1970s by a group of researchers and scientists at the newly formed Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) after the former Soviet Union launched Sputnik. Realizing that the United States had suffered a great technological blow by allowing the USSR to hold the first successful satellite launch, ARPA set out to create a brand new technology unlike anything that had ever been done before; and the Internet was the result of their hard work.

The Internet is based on many technologies developed for ARPANET in the 1960s and 1970s. The first ARPANET link was established between a computer at UCLA and another one at the Stanford Research Institute on October 29, 1969. By the end of 1971, there were fifteen computers on the network.The internet was invented in the 1990-99 decade. Before the invention of the internet telegraph, telephone radio and postal mail were modes of communication.The first applications of nodes connected as a (ring) network over long distance by phone lines were realized between the 1st of September 1969 and the 1st of October 1969.Arpanet (Advanced Research Projects Agency) was realized by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and SRI (Stanford Research Institute). Although DARPA's work is classified in this case the concept of resource sharing made the Internet possible.Other sources report the first connection was between DARPA and UCLA (Universityof California, Los Angeles). The node at SRI (Stanford Research Institute) would have -logically- been connected as well. The SRI node provided management and logging capabilities which made it imperative.Development of internet started in 1957 when Sputnik I (the first satellite) was launched by Soviet Union. American’s felt threat by this and thought that the Soviet Union could also do bomb attacks from the space. So they created Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) in 1958. It worked for the safety from space based missile attack. Then they made another satellite which was the first satellite of U.S.so we can play games yo.

The "internet" as we know it originally started out as a military program known as ARPANET. It was a relatively small closed network of computers used to transfer information from office to office.The Internet was originally developed by DARPA - the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities.Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet, where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork). The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization.One of the most important was the communications protocol, TCP/IP, developed by Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn in 1974. Robert Metcalfe is credited with Ethernet, which is the basic communication standard in networked computers.Tim Berners-Lee, who perhaps specified technological applicability and/or linguistic construction of HTML while working at CERN, is chiefly credited for the ease of use and wide public adoption of the web. His website is: w3.org.Al Gore really did have a substantial part in the US legal framework and governmental issues related to the Internet; he never said he invented it.There wasn't just ONE person who invented the Internet. The Internet is just a way to view files and information that someone puts onto a server. The Internet is just a way to access the information.Leonard Kleinrock was the first person to write a paper on the idea of packet switching (which is essential for the Internet to work. He wrote this idea in 1961.Others who were essential to what we now call the Internet. (Without these guys, the Internet wouldn't exist):Larry G. Roberts created the first functioning long-distance computer networks in 1965 and designed the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), the seed from which the modern Internet grew, in 1966.Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf invented the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which moves data on the modern Internet, in 1972 and 1973. If any two people "invented the Internet," it was Kahn and Cerf - but they have publicily stated that "no one person or group of people" invented the Internet.Radia Perlman invented the spanning tree algorithm in the 1980s. Her spanning tree algorithm allows efficient bridging between separate networks. Without a good bridging solution, large-scale networks like the Internet would be impractical.

Although there's a guy named Leonard Kleinrock who was the first person to write a paper on the idea of packet switching which is essential for internet to work. He wrote this idea in 1961. And here are a couple more people that were essential to what we call internet today without these guys there wouldn't be The Internet. Larry G.

As you might expect for a technology so expansive and ever-changing, it is impossible to credit the invention of the Internet to a single person. The Internet was the work of dozens of pioneering scientists, programmers and engineers who each developed new features and technologies that eventually merged to become the information superhighway we know today.
