The world's first website, created on December 20, 1990, represented just one page with information about hypertexts, ways of creating home webpages and search on the Internet.

In order to show the first website Tim Berners-Lee had to start the server at CERN for hosting, and write the browser to display pages.

Where is now the well-known creator? He continues to work in the web industry as director of World Wide Web Consortium, being an active fighter against government censorship, according to engadget.
