What is a URL/Link and how do I share it.

URL is an acronym that stands for "Universal Resource Locator." It's the text that you type into your browser when you want to go to a website.


Now that you have the URL/Web address copied you can paste it in a message or use it to create a hyperlink on the website. ( Please see the KB for creating a hyperlink)

Right-click in the area you want to paste the URL/Web address and select paste. 

Please see the image below to see what it looks when sending a link through Gmail.  The recipient of this message will be able to click the link and be directed to the website provided.
