A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) is a string of letters and characters conforming to a standardized format, which refers to a resource on the Internet (such as a document or an image) by its location. For example, the URL of this page on ARRSEPedia is http://www.arrse.co.uk/wiki/URL.

An URL, commonly called a web address, is usually shown in the address bar of a web browser - the small window near the top of your screen.

The term is typically pronounced as a spelled-out initialism ("yoo arr ell").
