  • What is the difference between URL and URI?

    I not getting the difference between URL and URI. Can anyone explain to me the difference?

  • #2
    URL means Uniform Resource Locator. Even I am eager to know what is URI.

      URI means Uniform Resource Identifier. It is a sequence of characters that classifies a source on the internet either by locality or by designation, or both.

        In short it is a technique to identify the resource.

            Ok. There is one more term you must have heard of;
            URN- Uniform Resource Name.
            Now I will explain the difference between the three:
            The difference between URL, URI and URN is as follows:
            1) URI is the string of characters used to identify the resource using both the Name and Location as well.
            2) URL is used to reach the resource just by using the “Location”.
            3) URN is used to reach the resource just by using the “Name”.
            Hope now you have a much clear idea.
