No not at all. The web is only 1 (or 2) of the tens of thousands of services being run on the Internet.

World Wide Web - The network of http (and https) servers running on the "Internet".

Internet - The world wide TCP/IP based network and all the tens of thousands of services being run across it.

Many people think of them as being synonymous. But those people will not be found on this list :)

Hope that helps,
Nigel
