The Internet (インターネット Intānetto?), also known as the Computer Network (コンピュータネットワーク / コンピュータのネットワーク Konpyūta Nettowāku / Konpyūta no Nettowāku?),[1][2] the Network (ネットワーク Nettowāku?),[3] the Net (ネット Netto?),[4] the Net Area (ネットエリア Netto Eria?),[5] or the Net Space (ネット空間 Netto Kūkan?),[6] is the manifestation of World Wide Web through which the Human World transmits a limitless supply of information, and is where Digimon were first found in 1997.[2] It is the boundary of the Digital World proper through which human hackers and evil Digimon frequently attempt to penetrate,[7] or abuse for their own selfish desires,[8] and as such it is protected by the Firewall (ファイアーウォール Faiāwōru?)[9][10][11], and patrolled by echelons of Network Security, such as the Royal Knights,[12]{{DRB|Omekamon]</ref>[13] Gryphonmon,[14] Giromon,[15] and the mysterious Cyberdramon,[7] who work to protect the Digital World. The Royal Knights themselves are placed in the highest ranks of Network Security, and as such it is absolutely impossible to violate Security in their presence,[12] while Giromon uses the alias of "Net Keeper".[15] Despite all protection, some Digimon like Megadramon and Infermon can easily penetrate Computer Networks even if they are protected by strong security,[16][17] and a malicious hacker once managed to disrupt the Internet, and it was still being repaired when Coelamon was discovered.[18] Sangloupmon is also able to instantaneously move to different places as it rushes about the Net by breaking down its data into packets at its own volition.[19]

Geographically, the Network contains a tropical region,[5] and is illuminated by GoldVeedramon's golden body.[4] Many Digimon travel through the Network.[6][20] The Network also contains confidential information, which Gryphonmon guards,[14] data on royal families,[21] as well as treasure, which drawed Barbamon's obsession.[22] The Internet, however, also contains malicious information. Its "Forbidden Data" transformed into intense dark energy, which coalesced to Duskmon,[23] while the evil feelings of the Hackers that abuse the Network appear to have produced Devidramon[8], and the aggression generated by the malice of these same people, as well as the conflicts unfolding on it, manifested into Kuramon's Digi-Egg. Due to having humanity's destruction instinct since its Digi-Egg form, Kuramon itself is a very dangerous being. Its virus-like multiplication within the Network causes a slight degree of network failure,[1] and once it digivolves into Tsumemon, it causes more malfunctions by corroding data at a tremendous speed, and becomes harder to capture due to its swift speed of movement.[3] Infermon, Kuramon's Ultimate form, can probably cause the world to collapse into chaos if released from the Network,[17] while its Mega form, Diaboromon absorbs the Internet's data repeatedly in order to digivolve and grow larger.[24]
