I find all this talk of "taking down the internet" rather amusing. Remember, the ARPAnet, which became internet, grew out of the US Department of Defence's need for a distributed communications network that could survive a nuclear war. Any damage was simply routed around. These days the internet - and by extension the world wide web - is considerably larger and more interconnected than it was back in the 1960s. Switching off or blocking the entire internet is a literal impossibility. Even the most determined attacks with DDoS, bots, and various malicious programs have failed. There is just too much to attack, and where one service fails another picks up the slack. Even if Google was somehow taken offline in its entirety for a whole month other companies and services would simply fill the void.
