    There are two answers to this question:
    1. Nobody
    2. Everyone
    No one actually owns the Internet, and no single person or organization entirely controls the Internet.
    as The Internet relies on a physical infrastructure that connects networks to other networks.
    It is a “network of networks” that consists of millions of private and public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked together…
    Internet Belongs to Everyone… There isn’t any single exclusive organisation or person who owns it.

    There is no called as owner for the internet. Internet stands for Internetwork of millions of computer in the world. Its like telephone system. No one owns it fully.

    We can also say in other term as many people and organizations own the internet which means they are not completely owning the internet. These organizations and other service providers can impact the efficiency of the internet.

    Nobody ‘owns’ the internet, so to speak. The internet is an international database used to store information and other things. It is used by billions of people everyday you can see that computers without internet are pretty much useless to many people today We go on the internet to give and take information and to chat with friends!!! hope
    that answers your question.

    OWNER OF INTERNET:-
    The Internet was originally developed by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities. The physical network that carries Internet traffic between different computer systems is the Internet backbone. In the early days of the Internet, ARPANET served as the system’s backbone.

    No one actually owns the Internet, and no single person or organization controls the Internet in its entirety. The Internet is more of a concept than an actual tangible entity, and it relies on a physical infrastructure that connects networks to other networks There are many organizations, corporations, governments, schools, private citizens and service providers that all own pieces of the infrastructure, but there is no one body that owns it all. There are, however, organizations that oversee and standardize what happens on the Internet and assign IP addresses and domain names, such as the National Science Foundation, the Internet Engineering Task Force, ICANN ,InterNIC and the Internet Architecture Board.

    The Internet was originally developed by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities. Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET. The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization.

    Our Internet Ecosystem:-
    1.our Internet Ecosystem is the used to describe the organizations and communities that help the Internet to work and evolve.
    2.These organizations share common values for the open development of the Internet.
    3.The Internet Ecosystem term implies that the rapid and continued development and adoption of Internet technologies can be attributed to the involvement of a broad range of actors; open, transparent, and collaborative processes; and the use of products and infrastructure with dispersed ownership and control.
    –:Organizations that make up the Internet Ecosystem include:–
    1.Technologists, engineers, architects, creatives, organizations such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) who help coordinate and implement open standards.
    2.Global and local Organizations that manage resources for global addressing capabilities such as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), including its operation of the Internet
    Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) function, Regional Internet Registries (RIR), and Domain Name Registries and Registrars.
    3.Operators, engineers, and vendors that provide network infrastructure services such as Domain Name Service (DNS) providers, network operators, and Internet Exchange Points (IXPs)
    4.Internet Users who use the Internet to communicate with each other and offer services
    5.Educators that teach others and build capacity for developing and using Internet technologies, such as multilateral organizations, educational institutions, and governmental agencies
    6.Policy and Decision Makers that provide local and global policy development and governance.

    —–:ABOUT THE OWNER OF INTERNET:—
    1. It’s a system that lets different computer networks communicate with each other using a standardized set of rules. Without rules, these computer networks wouldn’t be able to communicate with each other
    2.It’s a collection of inter-networked computer systems that spans the entire globe. It depends on several sets of rules called protocols. These protocols make it possible for computer communication across networks.

    The Internet’s Owners:-
    1. Nobody
    2. Lots of people
    If you think of the Internet as a unified, single entity, then no one owns it. There are organizations that determine the Internet’s structure and how it works, but they don’t have any ownership over the Internet itself. No
    government can lay claim to owning the Internet, nor can any company. The Internet is like the telephone system — no one owns the whole thing.From another point of view, thousands of people and organizations own the Internet. The Internet consists of lots of different bits and pieces, each of which has an owner. Some of these owners can control the quality and level of access you have to the Internet. They might not own the entire system, but they can impact your Internet experience.
