An intranet is the name given to a private network that provides similar services to The Internet: e-mail, messaging, web pages, etc.

However, these services are only for the users of the intranet – they are private, not public (unlike Internet services which are generally public).

Businesses and other organisations often have intranets for use by their employees.

Typical uses of an intranet would be:
  • Viewing internal web pages (e.g. company calendars, etc.)
  • Internal e-mail and instant-messaging between workers
  • Sharing of internal documents
