Xml Web URL

Hey I have the following code below, I am trying to map a URL to an XML Document so I can query it! I am having trouble getting it to work, I get a null reference exception on the MapPath.
Dim xmlPath As String = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath("http://example.com")

Dim feedXML As XDocument = XDocument.Load(xmlPath)

        Dim query = _
           From c In feedXML.Descendants("example") _
           Select c.@title

Open in new window

You can directly use as

Dim feedXML As XDocument = XDocument.Load("http://example.com")
