I think WorldCom Canada was the first commercial Internet access provider in 1991.
The World Wide Web is invented 1991. It has taken 40 years to reach that stage starting from late 1950, You should go through the brief history of internet.
In 1982 TCP/IP was established as the protocol for ARPANET. This provided one of the first definitions of an internet as a connected set of networks using TCP/IP, but defining 'the Internet' as all connected TCP/IP internets.
The first International WWW Conference was organized at CERN in Geneva in May 1994.

Good information etech! But a question, just because WorldCom was the first ISP does not necessarily mean they were the first shared host. Do you know them to be the first shared host for sure? Just interested...

JeffEDH and all members thanks for your appreciation.
In reality I got encouragement from you people and gone through offline research through different magazine, newspapers articles published in mid year 1991 and found that information. These important information was not even traceable through google, I wonder.
I really encouraged with those offline methods which we are probably forgetting.
