What Is a Hyperlink

Do you know what is a hyperlink or how to create one?

A hyperlink is a part of a hypertext that redirects to a piece of data, such as a document or a Web page. The hyperlink could be a word, phrase, or image that is clickable and refers to a new document or a different part in the same document. Hyperlinks are used in almost all websites, allowing users to navigate their way from page to page. Usually the text hyperlinks are blue and underlined, but this can be modified via CSS. When you hover the mouse cursor over a hyperlink the arrow should change to a small hand pointing at the link. When you click on it, a new document or a position in the current page will open. Hyperlinks, most commonly called just “links,” are mainly used in Web pages, but can be applied to other hypertext documents. These include certain encyclopedias, glossaries, dictionaries, and other references that use hyperlinks. The links act the same way as they do on the Web, allowing the user to jump from page to page. Basically, what is a hyperlink? A way for users to browse information conveniently and quickly.

Hyperlink HTML Code

All about the Hyperlink HTML Code.

The creator of the Internet, Tim Berners-Lee appreciated the advantages of using hyperlinks to refer any information to any other data over the Internet. Hyperlinks became a vital part of the creation of the World Wide Web. Web pages are written in the hypertext mark-up language HTML. Links are specified in HTML using the “< a >” (anchor) elements. To see the HTML used to create a page, most browsers offer a “view page source” option. Included in the HTML code will be an expression in the form symbol “” marking the start of an anchor, followed by the highlighted text and the “< /a >” symbol, which indicates the end of the source anchor. The < a > element can also be used to indicate the target of a Hyperlink HTML Code. A Hyperlink HTML code coming from one domain to another is defined as outbound from its source anchor and inbound to its target. The most common destination anchor is a URL used in the World Wide Web. This can refer to a document, e.g. a webpage, or other resource, or to a position in a webpage. The latter is achieved by means of an Hyperlink HTML Code element with a “name” or “id” attribute at that position of the HTML document.
