What is the difference between a URL & a domain

Post by Customer_Support » Thu Nov 25, 2010 5:08 pm

URL (uniform resource locator) is the full address that can be found in the address bar when visiting a website.

E.g http://www.traders.ukplc.net/forum_topics.asp?FID=5

The domain name would just be http://www.traders.ukplc.net

The registered domain name would be traders.ukplc.net

Therefore in order for a customer to find your site generator more easily you can shorten a URL by linking it with a domain name. For more information please view URL redirection.
