    Hi
    Hyperlinks and URLs. A hyperlink is a certain kind of "clickable" text or graphic, which the Web browser generally responds by loading a new Web page. A uniform resource locator (URL) is a special address that uniquely identifies a Web page on the Web.

    Hyperlinks and URLs. A hyperlink is a certain kind of "clickable" text or realistic, which the Web browser by and large reacts by stacking another Web page. A uniform resource locator (URL) is a special address that exceptionally distinguishes a Web page on the Web.

    URL is an abbreviation that stands for "Universal Resource Locator." It's another name for a web address, the text that you type into your internet browser when you want to go to a website. A URL works like a house address. If you give someone a house address, they can navigate to find a home or business.


    A link can be any text or image that you can click on that takes you to another page or file, either on your website or elsewhere on the internet.

    URLs are specific addresses while links are relative paths to URLs. Any time you are online navigating between websites, you are either using links or URLs (Uniform Resource Locators). Typically, you click on hyperlinks to follow links.
