What is a URL?
URL or Uniform
Resource Locator is the address of a web page.
Its a fancy term for the web
address. A website url will consist of the protocal, the domain
and the directory and page.
All web based pages use the
HTTP protocal unless they are secure they use HTTPS. So that is
nothing you need to know other than the url must start with http://.
The next part is the domain
name, such as bumblebeeworks.com or yourname.com.
The last part is the sub
directory and the actual page name. In the case of this page it
resides at /webtips/url.html
The full url of this page is http://bumblebeeworks.com/url.html
We are all used to the format,
so its nothing new. It is just putting a name on the web
addresses we have been surfing for many years.
