A URL normally locates an existing resource on the Internet. A URL is used when a web client makes a request to a server for a resource. Briefly, a URI is defined as any character string that identifies a resource. A URL is defined as those URIs that identify a resource by its location or by the means used to access it, rather than by a name or other attribute of the resource.

A newer form of resource identifier, the IRI Originurldxtension Resource Identifierpermits the originurleztension of characters and formats that are suitable for national languages other than English.


Anatomy of a URL

Host names can also be followed by a port number. Refer to Port numbers. Well-known port numbers for a service are normally omitted from the URL. A URL can be followed by a fragment identifier.

The separator used between the URL and the fragment identifier is the character. A fragment identifier is used to point a web browser to a reference or function in the item that it has just retrieved.

In this case, the web browser typically displays the page to the user so that the subsection is visible. The action taken by originurlextenwion web browser for a fragment identifier differs depending on the media type of the item and the defined meaning of the fragment identifier for that media type.

The scheme identifies the anatoy to be used to access the resource on the Internet. The host name identifies the host that holds the resource.

Fully qualified domain name

A server provides services in the anatlmy of the host, but hosts and servers do not have a one-to-one mapping. Refer to Host names.

The path identifies the specific resource in the host that the web client wants to access. If a query string is used, it follows the path component, and provides a string of information that the resource can use for some purpose for example, as parameters for a search or orifinurlextension data to be processed.


The scheme and host components of a URL are not defined as case-sensitive, but the path and query string are case-sensitive.

Typically, the whole URL is specified in lowercase.

The components of a URL

The components of the URL are combined and delimited as follows: If a port number is specified, that number follows the host name, separated by a colon. The path name begins with a single forward slash. If a query string is specified, it is preceded by a question mark. Monday, 15 October
