What is a URL (Uniform Resource Locator)?

Tech Computer Center logo

Every HTML document has a uniform resource locator, or URL, typically of this form:

  http://host.domain/path/filename
where the host.domain identifies the system and the path and file specify the file.

Your browser will always display the URL of the document you are currently viewing. In Netscape, the URL appears in the window labeled ``Location:''.
