A protocol identifier is nothing but the name of the protocol to be used to fetch the resource, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/.The example uses the HyperText Transfer Protocol over SSL (Secure Socket Layer) (HTTPs), which is TCP/IP protocol used by Web servers to transfer and display Web content securely.

The protocol identifier and the resource name are separated by a colon and two forward slashes. Each time the client taps on the connection URL finds the archive to be recovered. URL Parameters are parameters whose values are set dynamically in a page’s URL, and can be accessed by its template and its data sources. This makes pages incredibly dynamic, enabling a single page to power an endless number of views. This very page, for example, sets a parameter in the last bit of its URL (url-parameters), which is then used to filter a data source that fetches the appropriate entry from the “Concepts” section. Every individual Concept view on this site is thus powered by a single page. You can insert URL parameters into your URLs so that your URLs track information about a click. URL parameters are made of a key and a value separated by an equals sign (=) and joined by an ampersand (&). The first parameter always comes after a question mark in a URL.
