Uniform Resource Locator. It is a means of identifying an exact location on the Internet. For example, http://www.webtrends.com/html/info/default.htm is the URL which defines the location of the page Default.htm in the /html/info/ directory on the WebTrends web site. As the previous example shows, a URL consists of four parts: Protocol Type (HTTP), Machine Name (webtrends.com), Directory Path (/ html/info/), and File Name (default.htm).
