absolute path.

A path to a file that provides its full and complete Web address. The great thing about absolute paths is they're always the same, no matter where they appear on your site. You can move a link with an absolute path to any level of your site without having to change the path's format. The drawback to absolute paths is that they don't work offline. You have to be online to follow a link with an absolute path. For this reason, most designers reserve absolute paths for external links only, using document-relative or root-relative paths for internal links.
