Hyperlinks Explained

A Hyperlink is a bit of HTML code embedded into a webpage like this or an email which comprises a website address (URL) and display text

Example:

<a href=”https://www.w3schools.com/”>Visit W3Schools.com!</a>

In this case the website address is:

“https://www.w3schools.com/”

The displayed text is:

Visit W3Schools.com!

The hyperlink will display as:

Visit W3Schools.com!

Here is another hyperlink:

https://www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/Home

In this case the displayed text is:

https://www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/Home

Which is the web address for Coffs Harbour Council

But the actual web site is the Sydney Morning Herald:

https://www.smh.com.au
