URLs
Every web page has its own address called a Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Much like the address on an envelope with a name, street address, city, state, and zip code, each part of a URL provides information about the web page.

Here is a sample URL and descriptions of its components:
http://www.lcc.edu/library/library-instruction/research-guides.htm

http-type of Internet connection, hypertext transfer protocol

www-indicates the website is part of the World Wide Web

lcc-host computer/server name

edu-top-level domain name
library-directory name
library instruction-second-level directory name
research-guides.htm-page name
html or htm-type of file, hypertext mark-up language
