URI vs URL vs URN – Precise difference
- URL is now used as generic term. Although the subtle difference is;
- URN: refer the resource(including its location) without specifying how to access it.
- URL: it doesn’t refer the resource but its location of resource with method(protocol).
- URI: it represents resource as well as its location.
