1.What does URL stand for?

A Uniform Resource Locator(URL) is basically an address designed to let computers “talk” to one another quickly. Every address is put together in the same way so that when one machine communicates with another one, it can recognize each part of the address in the same way each time it gets a message. If every message comes in the same form, the receiving machine can anticipate it in that form and act on it more quickly.

  • Serve as a protocol to detect the location of addresses
  • Help data to be transmitted across the net

As well as , when hackers intercept our password, they will have many real difficulties deciphering our password as it is protect by a special code for example : “my password is cookies but it will be changed to milk when it was being send through down the server so that when the hacker intercept it they cannot decipher the code easily.
