Correct Answer - Option 3 : URL

The web address contains information about the location of the webpage. It is also known as the URL (uniform resource locator).

Uniform Resource Locator:

  • URL is an acronym for Uniform Resource Locator and is a reference (an address) to a resource on the Internet.
  • A Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) is a unique sequence of characters that identifies a logical or physical resource used by web technologies.
  • URIs may be used to identify anything, including real-world objects, such as people and places, concepts, or information resources such as web pages and books.
  • Some URIs provide a means of locating and retrieving information resources on a network (either on the Internet or on another private network, such as a computer filesystem or an Intranet); these are Uniform Resource Locators (URLs).
  • A URL provides the location of the resource. A URI identifies the resource by name at the specified location or URL.
  • Other URIs provide only a unique name, without a means of locating or retrieving the resource or information about it, these are Uniform Resource Names (URNs).
  • The web technologies that use URIs are not limited to web browsers.

Directory:

  • In computing, a directory is a file system cataloging structure that contains references to other computer files, and possibly other directories.
  • On many computers, directories are known as folders, or drawers, analogous to a workbench or the traditional office filing cabinet.

Protocol:

  • A protocol is a standard set of rules that allow electronic devices to communicate with each other.
  • These rules include what type of data may be transmitted, what commands are used to send and receive data, and how data transfers are confirmed. 

Domain: 

  • A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control within the Internet.
  • Domain names are used in various networking contexts and for application-specific naming and addressing purposes.
