Happy Birthday World Wide Web

By Lia / March 12th, 2019

Today, WHMCS joins the world in celebrating the World Wide Web's 30th anniversary.

March 12 is a special day in the history of the Internet - it marks the start date of the World Wide Web. It was on March 12 - 30 years ago today - in 1989, that British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, working for Europe's physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management. It signalled the birth of the World Wide Web that today is used by billions of people around the world to access the Internet.

Since 2005, WHMCS has allowed our customers to help their customers have a presence on the web, through integrations with web hosting control panels and domain registrars - and together we help make the web more accessible to millions of people globally.

Along with our customers and industry partners, we look forward to more years of growth and innovation for the World Wide Web!
