In computing, a Uniform Resource Identifier is something used to name something on the Internet. URIs are similar to URLs, because they are the name of something.

Examples of URIs include:

  • http://example.org/absolute/URI/with/absolute/path/to/resource.txt
  • ftp://example.org/resource.txt
  • urn:issn:1535-3613
  • mailto:somebody@someplace.com
