What is a URL?
Posted by Roy Petersen on Feb-15-2007 12:16 PM

URL stands for uniform resource locator and that makes perfect sense if you think in internet terms. You are wanting to locate a resource and we need a uniform way to do it! When your site is put on the internet, it's assigned an IP# such as 69.56.205.234

Rather than saying, "Visit my website at 69.56.205.234", you simply say "Visit me at www.woollybear.com" which is much easier to remember!
