How are IP addresses assigned TO URLs?

So, you have to get out of it.

A URL – a Universal Resource Locator – describes a detailed address at which a resource (text, image, film, etc) can be picked up.Embedded in it is the following information:


The authority may include the following parts (depending on the protocol)


This makes it clear at a glance with which technology this resource can be picked up from where, e.g.

https: // /unanswered/How-to-IP address URLs assigned

the https: specifies the protocol, so that a web browser knows, for example, which technology can be accessed.There are many different protocols, and not all are necessarily editable by a web browser. Other protocols are e.g. http: ftp: imap: jdbc: odbc: mailto: tel: etc

Then the authority:

this is the name of the Internet server.Like ‘’ or ‘’ or ‘’

Whether a www is in front of it or not is irrelevant, all that is in front of it are only distinctions that allow the operator of the website to distribute its service to different computers, or to distribute different services to different computers.

Users are used in themselves only in very special cases, usually instead of a user in place cookies (or other technologies) are used in place to determine the user accessing the resource.

the port is implicitly defined by the protocol and only needs to be specified if it deviates from the default.A port is always a number, e.g. 80 at http:, 443 at https: . In order for a computer to be able to offer multiple services (Web, E-mail, FTP, Counterstrike, Minecraft), a port is assigned to these services for external communication. The client (the web browser, Outlook, Thunderbird, Minecraft) usually knows what the default port is, or you have to provide this info separately.

The path is often real directories on the computer that is requested, but it can also be mapped technically completely differently, e.g. a hidden query on a database, or other mechanics.But the easiest way to imagine that these are directories and files on the target computer.

The parameters (with a ?separately) are used to further configure the resource if possible or necessary. This, too, is decided by the target computer whether and how what is done or not.

The last part, the #Unterteil is again one thing that only takes place in the browser, the target computer does not get this part at all.This allows you to describe a state IM loaded document, e.g. that one refers to a section in the middle of the document, or that a certain part of the document is active, and others are not.

So, and you’re asking AND WHAT IS WITH THE IP ADDRESS?

This is assigned to this small part here:

‘’ , ‘’ , ‘’

The server name is part of the authority that needs a valid IP address.However, you can have many server names pointed to an IP address, from which the question is crossed, the IP addresses are not assigned URLs, but the server name part of a URL is assigned to an IP address.

You usually can’t find out which server names an IP address has, but you can always find out the IP address of a server name.

But I’ll give you that for research:
