= E-mail addresses and web addresses =

An e-mail address usually looks like somebody@somewhere.something The simplest way to recognise an e-mail address is the @sign.

If you see an address that has an @ sign in it you know it is an e-mail address, not a web address.

An e-mail address usually belongs to a person. You can use the address to communicate with that person using email.

* often begin "http://". Nowadays you don't have to type this bit in. * often contain "www." (which stands for World Wide Web) * have other "words" separated by full-stops (.) or forward-slashes (/) * often have the word "visit" before them in newspapers and magazines!

A web address is the address of a page on a computer or "web server". If you type a web address into your browser - or click on a link in a document - the webserver will send the page to your computer's browser so you can read it. (Your computer must be connected to the internet for this to be successful)

If you want to "visit" a web page, use your web browser(Internet Explorer, Firefox or others). Press + L and type in the web address (Remember to press at the end). You should see the page if you are connected to the Internet

Tip: If the address starts with www. you often don't have to type this bit in either. Just type the rest of the address. If you don't get the result you expect (<5% of the time), just try again including the www. this time

This is a very simplified explanation, but it should be a good start
