Attribute – Href Attribute

Href Attribute

Href is short for “Hypertext Reference” and is an HTML attribute. The href attribute is mainly used for <a> tags to specify the URL for a webpage the link leads to (whether it be on a different section of the same page, or on a completely different webpage).

How to use

<a href="URL"></a>


<a href="">This is an absolute URL</a> <a href="index.html">This is a relative URL</a>

Another use

<a href="#top">Go to top</a>


It will take you to that position in the page where id="top" is given.
