Regular mail requires a street address so that the U.S. Postal Service knows where to deliver it. Websites and web pages also need an address so that computers know where to locate them. A web address, also known as a Uniform Resource Locator or URL, is the location of a particular website or web page on the World Wide Web.
Note: Even though URLs or web addresses may appear in print with the prefixes http:// or www., today’s browsers do not require typing those prefixes. All that is needed is the Domain Name and Domain Name Suffix.Types of Domains >>
