What's the difference between a URL and a link?


Recommended Posts

Hi,
Hyperlinks and URLs. A hyperlink is a certain kind of "clickable" text or graphic, which the Web browser generally responds by loading a new Web page. A uniform resource locator (URL) is a special address that uniquely identifies a Web page on the Web.

URL is an abbreviation that stands for "Universal Resource Locator." It's another name for a web address, the text that you type into your internet browser when you want to go to a website. A URL works like a house address. If you give someone a house address, they can navigate to find a home or business.


A link can be any text or image that you can click on that takes you to another page or file, either on your website or elsewhere on the internet.
