External linkAlthough the definition of an external link may vary from site to site or from person to person. An external link is any link that goes to a different domain (e.g., example.com to someplace.com) is considered an external link to computerhope.com.

Other examples of external links

However, different situations can cause a link to be thought of as internal instead. For example, if a site has subdomains or directories that host different sites on that domain (e.g., a site that hosts numerous blogs or homepages, or business sites). For example, the site someplace.com could have different blog subdomains like cooking.someplace.com, autorepair.someplace.com, etc. Although all of these sites are internal to the site, some services may consider them external links.
