The First Website on the Internet

The first website Tim Berners-Lee built (and therefore the first web site) was at http://info.cern.ch/ and was first put online on August 6, 1991. It provided an explanation about what the World Wide Web was, how one could own a browser, how to set up a web server, and so on. It was also the world's first web directory, since Berners-Lee later maintained a list of other web sites apart from his own.

Yes anonymous - the link is dangling. But that was the first URL used for the first website.
