Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)

A uniform resource identifier (URI) is a string of characters used to identify a name or a web resource in computing. This identification allows interaction with representations of the web resource over a network using specific protocols. Each URI is defined by schemes specifying concrete syntax and associated protocols. This enables interaction with representations of the resource over the World Wide Web. One common example of a URI is a Uniform Resource Locator (URL), also known as a standard web address.
