URL is an acronym for Uniform Resource Locator, a specification, where and how to access some kind of resource, e.g. a HTML-page or a graphics file
composed of 3 parts:
- The type of resource (e.g. http:)
- The name of the server, which holds the resource (e.g. www.turingart.com)
- And finally the exact location of the object on the server (z.B. /index.htm)
