–  ULR (Uniform Resource Locator)

– Scheme:    //host   :port   /path   :parameters   ?query   #fragment

– Scheme: (website URL’s it’s HTTP)

– //host ( ex –

– :port (number, it’s rare to see anymore)

– /path (path to the file, with html code in it)

– :parameters (not used very often)

– ?query (interactive sites)

– #fragment (takes you to a portion of the page)

Using relative URL’S –

– Don’t have all the parts

– Relative links are relative to the current location of the file that have the links in them
