Definition: The URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is the universal address format of a web page made up of a succession of lowercase characters without spaces, indicating the protocol of the server hosting the page (http, https, ftp, etc. ) then the domain name, the directory (i.e. the reference of the page on the server) and the suffix (such as the .fr, .com, .net extensions). Entered in an Internet browser (IE, Firefox or Chrome for example), the URL allows the display of the web page. In summary, a URL is the path to the website.
