The European Organization for Nuclear Research is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the date it released – for free – the technology and software needed to run a web server.

In honor of that anniversary, a team is recreating a working version of the first website – a how-to by the project’s creator.

The organization announced the release of that website on April 30, 1993.

A British physicist named the web – called W3 for short – in 1989.

It was designed as a way for scientists at various universities and other institutes to share information.
