What is a URL?

URL is an abbreviation for Uniform Resource Locator. It is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web.

The first part of the address is called a protocol identifier. It indicates which type of server the web browser will be talking to (ex: http). 

The second part is called a resource name and it specifies the IP address or domain name where the resource is located (ex: djeventplanner.com). 

The protocol identifier and resource name are separated by a colon and two forward slashes.
