Locator, the location of a resource on the internet. A URL is a type of URI (Uniform Resource Identifier), and consists of
scheme (in this context, HTTP or HTTPS), the name of a
machine (sometimes also called the
authority), and a path to a resource (for example, a file). For example,
http://localhost/acubis10/index.html specifies the file named
index.html from directory
acubis10 on server machine
localhost using the HTTP scheme. When this is typed into a web browser, the browser issues an HTTP GET request on this resource.
