2.3. Absolute URI

A valid absolute URI must have three parts:

  1. A scheme name that defines what kind of URI it is. The most common example is http, which specifies the Hypertext Transfer Protocol used by the World Wide Web.

  2. A colon character, “:

  3. A scheme-specific part follows the colon. The syntax of this part depends on the scheme name.

For example, in the URI “http://www.nmt.edu/tcc/”, the scheme name is “http” and the scheme-specific part is “//www.nmt.edu/tcc/”.
