such as .co.uk or .de, and is commonly referredto as a domain name.The next part of the part of the example URL /directory indicates that it is adirectory on the site. Sometimes this will be the end of the URL, and much like if theaddress ended with the domain, when a user goes to the URL they will go to the defaultindex page, if it exists. Before a directory there is a slash, indicating a new part of theURL.The next part is the page of the site. This is an actual file and can have one of anumber of different extensions. Much like directories, there is a slash before the file namewhether or not the domain or a directory precedes it, indicating that this is yet another  part of a URL.
