Dear all,

One should use the term URI and only use URL when referring to URI that provides location.
 
Quote - https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-1.1.3


"Uniform Resource Locator" (URL) refers to the subset of URIs that, in addition to identifying a resource, provide a means of locating the resource by describing its primary access mechanism

Future specifications and related documentation should use the general term "URI" rather than the more restrictive terms "URL" and "URN"

Regards
Tomas
