Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Sidebar: URL vs. URI, part of Learning REST APIs.
- Short sidebar.…Moving through this course,…you'll hear me use the acronyms URL and URI quite a lot…and you may be wondering what the difference is.…So let me give you a brief explanation.…In the official definition, a URI…or Universal Resource Identifier,…is described as a "compact sequence of characters…"that identifies an abstract or physical resource"…that "provides a simple and extensible means…"for identifying a resource."…The URI is the most generic method…for naming and locating a web resource.…
The official examples of URIs show you…that any sequence of characters…that identifies a resource is considered a URI.…The URL, or Universal Resource Locator,…is a subset of the URI.…The URL not only identifies a resource,…but also explains how to access that resource…by providing an explicit method like HTTP or FTP.…In other words, all URLs are URIs,…but not all URIs are URLs.…
There's also another subset of URIs we rarely talk about,…the URN, or Universal Resource Name.…The URN refers to both URIs under the URN scheme…
