What is the difference between Absolute vs Relative URLs

Absolute /Fully Qualified URLs:
  • Contain all information necessary for the browser(or other client program) to locate the resource named in the URL
    • This includes protocol moniker used( i.e http://, ftp://..etc..), Server’s Domain name or IP address and the file path
    • Absolute URL looks as http://localhost/syncfusion/page1.aspx
Relative URLs:
  • Only provide information necessary to locate a resource relative to the current document(document relative) or current server or domain(root relative)
    • Document relative URL - page1.aspx
    • Root Relative URL - /syncfusion/Admin/pagelog.aspx
