- A fully qualified domain name (FQDN), sometimes called an absolute domain name, consists of a list of domain labels representing the hierarchy from the lowest relevant level in the DNS to the top-level domain (TLD), all concatenated with a dot. In DNS zone files, a domain name must end with a dot to be resolved as a valid FQDN.
- On the other hand, a fully qualified URL (FQU) is an absolute URL that starts with a valid scheme, like http(s), and has a complete path of directories, if any, to a file. Like FQDNs, FQUs can only be interpreted in one way.
- Some times you just want to extract FQUs from an initial FQU, a piece of text, or from the source code of a file residing in your local machine. The file may consists of an email, blog, forum, twitter, or facebook message, or can be an htm(l), asp(x), doc(x), js, css, txt, or php file.
- On occasions, your target might reside in a remote server or another machine. Said page might be a search results page, an online catalog, a link hub page, or one from your competitor or prospective client. This tools can help you to extract FQUs from these sources.
- If a remote host or search engine blocks, limits, or obfuscates your request or the results, visit the target URL and submit the visible text or source code associated to said web address.
