URI and URL

Written by

The terms URI and URL are often used interchangeably when describing links , however there is a difference. URI is an acronym for Uniform Resource Identifier and URL is an acronym for Uniform Resource Locator.

The difference being that a URL also includes the method for finding and accessing the resource, the communication protocol, while a URI  provides a reference to the resource itself. Therefore all URLs ARE URIs, but URIs are not URLs.

So this; webmaster-talk.eu/def-uri-url is a URI while the URL for the same resource would be http://webmaster-talk.eu/def-uri-url
