A Uniform Resource Locator (URL), colloquially termed a web address, is a reference that specifies its location.
You can type the full web address in your browser; probably the safest way to ensure you are going to the location you selected. You could copy and paste a web address into your browser, but read it carefully and ensure it is correct.
A Website address such as this seems clear in its target destination: www.getsafeonline.org
If you hover your mouse over the link, the destination web address will appear in the bottom left corner of your browser window.
Try this link and see where it leads: www.getsafeonline.org
You can also see links such as HERE.
Links can also appear like this: https://tinyurl.com/ycklyzj6
This is a legitimate address but is not easy to interpret.
