15 Minute Series What is a URL?

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. A URL identifies a particular Internet resource; for example a Web page, a gopher server, a library catalog, an image, or a text file.

URLs represent a standardized addressing scheme for Internet resources, and help users locate these resources by indicating exactly where they are.

Every resource available via the World Wide Web has a unique URL.
