    Uniform Resource Locator

    (pronounced: U-R-L or earl)

    An acronym/term that describes the location and access method of a resource on the Internet; for example, the URL "http://www.netlingo.com"/ describes the type of access method being used (http-the protocol) and the server location that hosts the Web site (www.netlingo.com-the address). All Web sites have URLs. One could say a URL is what a telephone number is to a telephone or what a street address is to a house. Because Web site URLs are sometimes long and hard to read, Web browsers (such as Netscape Navigator) have a bookmark feature that gives users the opportunity to save the location (the URL) of sites you'd like to return to.

When you type the URL into your browser, that text string is sent to a computer called a Domain Name Server (DNS). This is generally a service provided by your ISP. The DNS tranlates the text string into an actual IP address, and the IP address is used to make the connection to the service you are trying to find. This all happens transparently to the user.

    If you look up on the screen and to the left you will see Address and where you type in the site you are searching for such as www.aol.com or www.yahoo.com....those are url addresses.
