Happy Birthday, Web – The First Website | April 30, 1993

Tech, Design, Style, Stuff.

April 30, 1993.

On this day the World Wide Web entered the public domain. CERN, the  research group behind the Large Hadron Collider, made World Wide Web technologies available to everyone on a royalty-free basis.

In a celebration of the web’s proud history, the CERN team has started up a new project to revive the very first website at its original URL. Alongside the website restoration, CERN aims to dig up and preserve all digital assets associated with the inception of the web, with the ultimate goal being to turn info.CERN.ch into a historical archive for future generations.
