What is a URL?

What Do You Mean by “URL?”

The acronym “URL” signifies “Uniform Resource Locator.” Here’s the definition sourced from Wikipedia:

A Uniform Resource Locator, or URL, commonly known as a web address, is a specific character sequence that serves as a reference to a resource. In most web browsers, you can find the URL of a web page prominently displayed in the address bar at the top. For example, a typical URL could be “https://en.example.org/wiki/Main_Page.” Technically, a URL is a subset of a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). However, in many technical documents and conversations, “URL” is often used interchangeably with “URI” without causing confusion.

I trust that this clarifies matters effectively, don’t you agree?

In simple terms, a URL is the address of a website or web page, the content you see in your web browser’s address bar. This full address includes the “https://” or “http://” (where “https” indicates secure) segment. Each URL is unique, without spaces or certain characters like apostrophes.
