    Sometimes, google can be your friend
    -----------------------------------------------

    Web sites are found by their addresses. Each web site has a URL, or Uniform Resource Locator, assigned to it. This is how a URL is broken down:

    http://websearch.about.com/od/dailywebsearchtips/qt/dnt0526.htm is our example.
    http://: type of file
    domain name: location of the file's web server is at websearch.about.com.
    backslash,then file name: path or directory on the computer to this file; which in our case is "od/dailywebsearchtips/qt". You're just basically moving from sub-directory to sub-directory here.

    In order for this to work, every file on every computer in the world must have a name that is guaranteed to be unique. The URL (Uniform Resource Locator) naming system gives a unique name to every file on every internet-connected computer in the world.


    A URL or web address consists of several parts. Here is an example URL:


    http://www.website.com/directory/page.htm?variable=value
