    Hi Friends,
    URL and Web Address are one and all the same. The latter is a much more common terminology that people can understand without have to lookup on the web like you would do for URL.

    While writing code in lets say CSS or JavaScript, you often encounter the acronym URL rather than web address because it is a standard that’s been followed in the development of interpreters or compilers.

    For example:

    To set a background image from external source using CSS, you would use this code:

    background: url(‘www.example.com/fuzzybear.jpg’);
    While you are asked to share the link the resource to your friend, in this case the fuzzybear.jpg file, you pass on the web address to it.

    The URL is like the address to your house. The web address is like the insides of your house.

    URL is an abbreviation that stands for "Universal Resource Locator." It's another name for a web address, the text that you type into your internet browser when you want to go to a website. A URL works like a house address. If you give someone a house address, they can navigate to find a home or business.

    A link can be any text or image that you can click on that takes you to another page or file, either on your website or elsewhere on the internet.

    A Uniform Resource Locator, colloquially termed a web address, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier, although many people use the two terms interchangeably.
