URL (Uniform Resource Locator) & Connections

If you're new to creating content for the World Wide Web, there are a few concepts that you should be familiar with. The first is the URL or Uniform Resource Locator.
The URL is the address of a particular item on the Internet. This address can be part of either a domain name or an IP address.
A URL using a domain name would look something like http://www.cpwebhosting.net.com, and the file you seek might be in the directory. You can just as easily use the IP address to get the file you seek.
A complete URL contains a protocol prefix, such as HTTP:// or FTP://, followed by the address and a port number for example,
A server is a machine that contains the content and the associated server software. A client is a machine that is usually not a server, but that connects to the server to retrieve content.
In the case of the World Wide Web, the server is the machine that contains your published Web pages, and the client machines are those of people who are viewing your pages.
  • Bandwidth determines a speed at which you can move an amount of data between devices.
  • Three broad types of bandwidth exist little bandwidth, middle band, and broadband.
  • The Low-bandwidth connections are the analog connections with modems.
  • Analog connections use sounds that must be translated into digital signals before a machine can understand them.
  • A middle band connection might be an ISDN or other digital connection.
  • Digital connections are faster because they require no translation step, and the signal itself is usually cleaner.
  • A Broadband connection might be a T1 connection or a cable modem.
  • Right now, most client machines hook into the Internet in the low-bandwidth connection range. Over the next few years, middleband and broadband connections will become much more common.
