Uniform Resource Locator (URL)

By Tia Dang | last updated 7th December 2020


What is a URL?

In order to construct a full web address to direct a browser to a particular online web page, a URL integrates the domain name, along with the protocol and other paths.

Secure URLs

A URL starting with https:/ means that you are on a safe website. That means that it will be encrypted until it's transmitted if you enter personal information on that webpage.

Key point:URLs also go by a few other names. You can also hear them referred to as locators of universal tools, web addresses, or internet addresses.
