URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator, and is used to specify addresses on the World Wide Web. A URL is the fundamental network identification for any resource connected to the web (e.g., hypertext pages, images, and sound files).
A common way to get to a Web site is to enter the URL of its home page file in your Web browser 's address line. However, any file within that Web site can also be specified with a URL.
