A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is another word for “web address.” Each page on the World Wide Web has a unique address that points to a resource online that we can find and access whenever we want. Here’s what you need to know:
A URL has two main components:
- The protocol identifier — https — tells the name of the protocol that will be used to transfer the information. This could be HTTP, HTTPS or FTP.
- The resource name — herdatamethod.com — is the name of the resource we are fetching from the interwebs, in this case, Her Data Method’s website.
