    "On the Internet, these addresses are called URLs (Uniform Resource Locators).

    The location of a webpage or file on the Internet. Some of Google's URLs include www.google.com, adwords.googleblog.com, and http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy.

    Just as buildings and houses have a street address, webpages also have unique addresses to help people locate them. On the Internet, these addresses are called URLs (Uniform Resource Locators).
    A webpage's URL—such as http://support.google.com/google-ads—is made up of a domain name (here it's "google"), a domain category (".com"), and sometimes other elements like a subdomain ("support") and path ("/google-ads").
    For each of your ads, you specify a display URL that's shown with your ad as well as a final URL that determines where people are taken when they click your ad.
    To find a webpage's URL, look in the address bar near the top of your Internet browser.

    URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. A URL is nothing more than the address of a given unique resource on the Web. In theory, each valid URL points to a unique resource. Such resources can be an HTML page, a CSS document, an image, etc. In practice, there are some exceptions, the most common being a URL pointing to a resource that no longer exists or that has moved. As the resource represented by the URL and the URL itself are handled by the Web server, it is up to the owner of the web server to carefully manage that resource and its associated URL.

    A URL is a “Uniform Resource Locator.” And that…doesn’t really clear things up, to be honest. What does that mean? Well, essentially, the website is the “resource,” and the URL, the “locator,” is what identifies it and allows you to find it.

    And there’s actually another possible answer to the question “what does URL stand for” that you might hear, too. Some sources have the U standing for “Universal” rather than “Uniform.” “Universal Resource Locator” was the original name, before the creators switched it out for “Uniform” back in 1994; occasionally you’ll still hear “Universal” pop up, though, so sometimes it’s also considered acceptable.

    A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is a unique identifier used to locate a resource on the Internet. It is also referred to as a web address. URLs consist of multiple parts -- including a protocol and domain name -- that tell a web browser how and where to retrieve a resource.

    End-users use URLs by typing them directly into the address bar of a browser or by clicking a hyperlink found on a webpage, bookmark list, in an email or from another application.

    A URL, short for Uniform Resource Locator, can be thought of as a hand pointing to the person you want to talk to.

    URLs are generally domain names that refer to a series of numbers called an IP address. The URL makes it easier to access a web page because people like to remember names instead of long strings of complicated numbers. Know that all websites are identified with a unique Internet Protocol (IP).

    "A URL is a "Uniform Resource Locator." And that… doesn't actually clear things up, truth be told. What's the significance here? Indeed, basically, the site is the "asset," and the URL, the "finder," is the thing that recognizes it and permits you to track down it.

    What's more, there's really one more conceivable response to the inquiry "what does URL rely on" that you may hear, as well. A few sources have the U meaning "General" rather than "Uniform." "All-inclusive Resource Locator" was the first name, before the makers changed it out for "Uniform" back in 1994; periodically you'll in any case hear "Widespread" spring up, however, so at times it's likewise thought to be satisfactory."
