In this lecture, our instructor, Candyce Mairs, discusses the basics of URLs. She gives examples of domain names, discusses the different protocol variations, highlights website folders, and shows how to identify web page files by their extension.
There are different types of protocols for the internet, ie, ftp, https, etc.
This one stands for a basic page request from a web server
The domain name
When a domain is requested, that domain name is translated into an iP address
There is a central database that stores the domain names & associated IP addresses for those domain names
When you purchase a domain name, your domain name & ip address are placed into the central database so your web pages can be accessed using your domain name
Anything following the domain name defines folders/files within the website structure
This example says that there is a folder within the adobe website structure called products and the web page we are viewing is located within that folder
A web page within the web site
This is telling the browser to locate the web page called dreamweaver.html
