Fail.

It is Uniform Resource Locator "and is used to specify addresses on the World Wide Web. A URL is the fundamental network identification for any resource connected to the web (e.g., hypertext pages, images, and sound files)."

Now let's talk about http and HTML.

URL? Misspelled word. He meant to say Ural, as in Ural Mountains.

Kinda like Toyota trucks that have TRD on the back. All it is missing is "U" as I say to them.
