The Internet is an elaborate series of computer programs and connections designed to link computers and servers to specific sites on the World Wide Web. By accessing the World Wide Web and the Internet, Public Affairs Offices can offer timely information to the public.

Getting Online

To get on the Internet or the World Wide Web, a site must establish an address on a computer server. To do this, PA offices should contact the base, post, station or command computer resource manager to request adequate support for web operations.

Web Providers

While Department of Defense offices are able to access "DoD Links" and service unique Internet sites, it is not recommended that PA offices acquire independent Web service providers. It is recommended that DoD channels be used to access the Internet, rather than paying for private provider services. PA offices should check with local Information Management Office officials and service unique regulations or guidelines.
