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.
