I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you talking about "navigating to" or "visiting" a website address?

most of the time what makes up a url is the file structure of your website.
So from the root of the website where ever that is if you see /something/some file, then something is the name of the folder that some file is in with relation to your root.
With respect to anything after a ? then that is the query string that you would get after submitting some form with a method of get.

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator. It is a path to a file that is published on the internet.

1.

The part before the first slash is the location of the server and is translated by the domain name servers around the world into an IP address which points to a node on the world-wide network.

2.

What follows the first slash and precedes the question mark is the path to the directory or specific file within the shared folder on that server.

3.

In a framework, that file would contain a script that would then locate and deliver another file based on the values that follow the question mark (query string).The only thing that is assigned is the query string which is determined by the person writing the script and can be any string of letters and numbers and a few punctuation marks they choose provided they include in the script a map which ties that same string of characters to a particular file location.

I hope this is helpful in answering your question.
