A Web URL, or Uniform Resource Locator, is an Internet address, for example, http://www.utexas.edu/. The URL usually consisting of:
- the access protocol – http,
- the domain name – www.utexas.edu, and
- optionally the path to a file or resource residing on that website.
After you save your page, the Permalink below the Title displays the automated Web URL address. The URL is generated from your Title. Non-alpha-numeric characters are stripped and a dash is put between each word. You can manually change your Page’s Permalink by clicking the Edit button. However, it’s not recommended that you edit the URL of pages that have already been published.
