Winsock refers to a technical specification that defines a standard interface between a Windows TCP/IP client application (such as an FTP client or a Gopher client) and the underlying TCP/IP protocol stack. TCP/IP has been called "the language of the Internet" and rightly so as most of the Internet is comprised of systems that use TCP/IP to talk to one another. The Winsock nomenclature is based on the Sockets applications programming interface model used in Berkeley UNIX for communications between programs. Windows Sockets are designed very similar to Berkeley Sockets.
