There are three main ways to move between web pages or websites:
  1. Clicking a text hyperlink.

  2. Clicking a hyperlinked graphic image, such as a button, photograph, or drawing.

  3. Typing the Address (URL) of a web page in the location box (also known as the address field) of your web browser and the pressing the Enter or Return key.

 

Surfing the Net
The type of website you are on can be determined by the domain extension. The following are generally in use
  •  com - commercial enterprise
  •  edu - educational institution
  •  gov - government entity
  •  mil - military entity
  •  net - network access provider
  •  org - usually a non-profit organization

New domain names were approved in November 2000 by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN):

.biz, .museum, .info, .pro (for professionals), .name (for individuals), .aero (for the aerospace industry), and .coop (for cooperatives).

These domain names are beginning to become available.

 

In addition each country has a  two-letter Internet Country Code to identify it (except for the United States which has no identifier code).

Examples of these are:

  •  au - Australia
  •  ch - Switzerland
  •  de - Germany
  •  jp - Japan
  •  uk - United Kingdom
