I think this is more something for, erm, Sockets and Internet Protocols. I'll move your question and leave it up to the moderator there to answer.
[ahem]
The Internet is a network, or rather a network of networks.
The Web is a collection of heavily interlinked documents, mostly but not exclusively written in the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), hosted on servers all over the world, mostly hosted on Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) servers.
The Web lives on the Internet, and in colloquial speech is often used interchangeably with the Internet. Although the Web can be loosely said to be part of the Internet, the Internet is far larget than just the Web. For instance, the Internet hosts e-mail, news servers, FTP servers, peer-to-peer networks, VPNs, telephony and so forth which are by no means part of the Web.
