The word web versus the word internet 

The words web and internet are not synonymous. The internet is the infrastructure of connections, whereas the web is the information stored on and transmitted over this network. The web cannot exist without the internet. With this in mind, we recommend translating xarxa as web, unless you are sure that it refers to the internet infrastructure.
