All these information is stored in servers , typically computers with high speed and capacity. They are a number of servers located all over the world. When you enter a web address in your browser, the information is sent through and they server that hosts the website you have entered replies to you by sending you the corresponding page. All this is done using programming languages like Databases, Scripting, etc. Don't feel dumb.. its really good to openly ask what you don't know or not sure of. Cheers :)
