Quick Reference

*uniform resource locators are notoriously difficult to remember. The Real Name system was developed in order to overcome this. It allows the user to refer to a Web site by an easily remembered set of words. For example, the company Acme Widgets might have as its real name AcmeWidgets. It is in operation at the Alta Vista search engine in order to aid the searching process and to find Web sites by means of brand names.
