URL: Uniform Resource Locator

Logo for URL: Uniform Resource Locator
This presentation is on URLs. URL sounds exotic – it stands for uniform resource locator – but it is just a geek term for a Web address. A URL is the address of a resource on the Web. You've typed URLs into Web browsers many times, but may not have thought about the meanings of each of the four parts of a URL. We will review them and also mention shortened URLs. In order to understand the parts of a URL, we will also cover domain names, directories and file names.
