Most people consider these the same urls:

www.example.com
example.com/
www.example.com/index.html
example.com/home.asp

But technically all of these urls are different why???

    I'd love to be corrected here as it's not something I've ever researched but rather have accepted it is the way it is.

    However, as a common sense guess I'm guessing it has to do with the following;

    www.example.com/index.html can be a document about dogs and referred to from external resources.
    www.example.com/home.asp could be about cats and also referred to from external resources.

    On the other hand, via redirection at the web hosting level;

    example.com could be pointed to one set of documents (a website)
    www.example.com could be pointed at a separate set of documents (another website)

    Anyone able to clarify?
