What is a URL?

What Do You Mean by "URL?"

URL stands for "Uniform Resource Locator" and here is the definition from Wikipedia:

A uniform resource locator, abbreviated URL, also known as web address, is a specific character string that constitutes a reference to a resource. In most web browsers, the URL of a web page is displayed on top inside an address bar. An example of a typical URL would be "https://en.example.org/wiki/Main_Page". A URL is technically a type of uniform resource identifier (URI), but in many technical documents and verbal discussions, URL is often used as a synonym for URI, and this is not considered a problem.

I'm sure that clears things right up, right?

A URL is the website or web page's address. It's what is in the address bar of your web browser. It's the full address of a page, including the "https://" or "https://" (https = secure) part. Each one is unique. It cannot have spaces in it. Some other characters like apostrophes are not allowed either.
