re: What Is The Difference Between A URI And A URL? VIEW POST


Always wondered. Would have been nice to have seen some examples too :) is not a URI, it is just a domain name.

URI's must start with a scheme (e.g. file, http, ftp) as specified in section 1.1.1 of the RFC you linked to.

A scheme may or may not be associated with a protocol which is where your confustion may be coming from. For instance the schemes 'http' and 'ftp' are clearly associated with the HTTP and FTP protocols, whereas the 'file' scheme is not associated with any protocol.

Hm yes, correct. I think I confused myself :D
