A URL, or Universal Resource Location, is simply your Web address. Like your phone number, it is the way that people find you. URL's consists of three parts: The service identifier, the domain name, and a file name. Most Web addresses begin with http:// followed by the Web site address. This gives the computer the information it needs to process the Web page it finds. Most often users navigate the Web by clicking on hypertext links, but URL's can also be entered directly if they're seen in print media or e-mail messages, for example. For more information on URL's, please contact your local Internet service provider.
