Velo is a full-stack development platform that empowers you to rapidly build, manage and deploy professional web apps.

In many situations you might refer to the URLs of your site's pages. A page's URL is made up of several parts that are detailed below. Your site's URL looks different depending on whether you have a premium site or a free site.

Full URL

Here, we'll use the following equivalent URLs to demonstrate the difference between premium and free sites:

  • Premium: 
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free: 
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant

Protocol

The protocol is the start of both types of URLs:

  • Premium:
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free:
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant

Base URL

The base URL is the URL of your home page:

  • Premium:
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free:
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant

Prefix

Dynamic pages and router pages have a prefix:

  • Premium:
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free:
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant

Path

The path follows the prefix if one exists. If there is no prefix, it follows the base URL:

  • Premium:
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free:
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant

Query

The query is a list of keys and values:

  • Premium:
    https://domain.com/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
  • Free:
    https://user.wixsite.com/zoo/animals/mammals/elephant?species=african-elephant
