In the 1960s, the Department of Defense of the United States, through the Advanced Research Projects Agency, which was also abbreviated as ARPA, pioneered a network system called ARPANET. This ARPANET is its origin before internet technology was formed.

In the 1980s, the internet began to be used by limited circles and carried out its function by connecting various campuses or universities that were popular in the United States.

The standard protocol of TCP / IP itself began to be published to the public in 1982. The existence of domain names also began to be used four years later, in 1984, to be precise. Then, the National Science Foundation Network (NSFNET) was founded and began to be developed in 1986.

NSFNET is what began to replace the role of the ARPANET as a forum for related research in the United States. Several international networks in many countries have finally started to be developed and linked through the NSFNET.

The ARPANET was later revealed in 1990. However, the internet itself has been developing continuously until now. In the past, the only information that could be had via the internet was text-based information. And in 1990, a similar graphical display-based service known as WWW (World Wide Web) began to be developed again by CERN.


In 1993, InterNIC was founded in order to serve domain name registrations from the public. Around 1994, the internet entered our country, Indonesia.

At that time, the internet network in Indonesia was more identified by a unique name, namely Paguyuban Network. Paguyuban Network also means similar to its name where the spirit of kinship or cooperation occurs so intimately among its technology developer members.

This is quite different when compared to the current atmosphere of Internet development in Indonesia, which is, of course, more towards its commercial objectives. But of course, it is not only the negative side that is felt; e-commerce and other commercial companies have increased dramatically and helped build the nation’s economy.

At that time, RMS Ibrahim, Adisoemarta, Suryono, Muhammad Ihsan, Putu, Robby Soebiakto, Firman Siregar, Adi Idrayanto, and Onno Purbo were some of the names of legendary developer figures recorded in the early internet history of Indonesia, around 1992 to 1994 to be precise. Each of these developers has contributed and dedicated their expertise in building the history of IT in Indonesia.

One of the contents that we often find on the internet today is a video that is shared in certain media, especially YouTube. Suitable for sharing daily activities in the form of vlogs, cinematic videos such as short films or trailers, talk shows, even packaged commercials
