I think alot of people are not aware of what a URL is or how it works for that matter. So let’s start by defining it.
A URL consists of two main parts: the protocol identifier and resource name. The protocol identifier specifies how information from the link is transferred. An example of a protocol used for Web resources is hypertext transfer protocol, or HTTP. The resource name specifies the Internet Protocol, or IP, address or the domain name where the resource is located.
A URL is one type of a uniform resource identifier, a generic term for all types of names and addresses referring to objects on the Internet. (source: reference.com)
In short this is how someone will find your SMB website on the net.
