Internet Glossary


URL


Uniform Resource Locator.
Every single thing you see on the Web has its own distinct address, or URL. Web pages, images, scripts, and other various multimedia all have a distinct location, which more often than not begins with "HTTP" (which stands for "hypertext transfer protocol") followed by a colon and two slashes (http://). Though based on the file you're accessing, the preamble can vary, replacing HTTP with: FTP, or "file transfer protocol" (used to transfer software or other large files); telnet (which is used to log into a remote computer); or file, which means the browser is reading a document locally (i.e., off your own computer) rather than off a remote server.
