What is an Absolute Path?
Absolute URL paths
Absolute paths are complete URLs pointing to specific web pages. An absolute path includes each part of the URL, including the HTTP/HTTPS connection protocol and the www (if appropriate).
An example of an absolute path is https://www.ex2.com. In the vast majority of cases, URLs are accessible without providing the entire absolute path. Browsers are able to interpret "incomplete" queries, such as ex2.com.
When using internal links, you have the choice to use relative URLs or absolute paths. For example, if you want to insert a link to your Store page on the home page, you can use a relative URL similar to “/store”.
When a browser analyzes an incomplete URL, it naturally interprets it as a relative path. It then deduces the rest of the way by relying on the sitemap.
