What Does URL Stand For? What Is URL?

URL is the initials for Uniform Resource Locator: Also called a web address or website address or website URL, it is typically displaying the address of a given unique resource on the Web.

Each valid URL points to a unique resource, usually a specific website. This website URL 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 (which can result a page not found message or a 404 page). 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.
