Parts of a URL
A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is like an address for a web page. Much like the address on an envelope with a name, street address, city, etc., each part of a URL provides information about the location of the web page. A web page is usually part of a larger web site, much like a page is part of a book.

Roll your mouse over each part of the URL.
