Uniform Resource Locator (URL)

What is it?

A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) , as the name suggests, provides a way to locate a resource on the web, the hypertext system that operates over the internet. The URL contains the name of the protocol to be used to access the resource and a resource name. The first part of a URL identifies what protocol to use. The second part identifies the IP address or domain name where the resource is located.

A URL is the most common type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). URIs are strings of characters used to identify a resource over a network. URL protocols include HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) and HTTPS (HTTP Secure) for web resources, “mailto” for email addresses, “ftp” for files on a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server, and telnet for a session to access remote computers.
