When you access something on the Internet, whether it is an image, website, song or video file, you will notice that it is accessible from a specific website address, visible in your browser's address bar. That address is the URL of the file and it tells you exactly where that file is located on the Internet. The URL consists of a domain name and a file path to a specific file or webpage.
