Transcript of "Url"

  1. 1. Web Browser A software application that enables you to view and interact with pages on the World Wide Web.
  2. 2. Search Engine A database on the World Wide Web that enables you to use search terms or key words to find relevant pages or websites.
  3. 3. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) These are some examples of the URLs that you may have come across: If you type these URLs into your browser, you will go to the exact site you wanted without having to use a search engine. http://www.google.com http://www.yahoo.co.uk http://www.amazon.com
  4. 4. http://www.bbc.co.uk http:// www .bbc.co.uk You can break a URL down into three sections.
  5. 5. <ul><li>The ending is really important as it tells you about the site you are looking. </li></ul>http://www.bbc .co .uk
  6. 6. Other endings you might come across
  7. 7. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) http://www.amazon.co.uk The www is short for World Wide Web. The www in the URL does not really do anything, it simply grew out of popular use. You will now find many websites which do not have ‘www’ in their URL.
  8. 8. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) http://www.amazon.co.uk Amazon.co.uk is called the Domain name. It is part of the URL. However, it also tells you which organisation owns the site. In this case, a company called Amazon.
  9. 9. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) This can tell you a lot about the type of website that you will be visiting. In this instance, it means that the website belongs to a company or business. http://www.amazon.co.uk Notice that part of the URL contains the word .co
  10. 10. Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) http://www.amazon.co.uk Finally, notice that this URL ends with ‘.uk’ This means that the website is registered in the United Kingdom. A website which ended with: .fr would mean it was registered in France .cn would be registered in China .nz would be registered in New Zealand
