live link

(1) An active text or graphic link on a Web page. Clicking the link redirects the user to another Web page or a document or image. Live links are also placed into email, allowing recipients of the message to immediately go to a website or open an attached document or image. In this context, live link is contrasted with a URL that is printed or displayed. If the URL text is in electronic form, it must be copied and pasted into a Web browser to function as a link. See hypertext, hypergraphic and URL.

(2) A text or graphic link that redirects the user to a website, document or image that does, in fact, exist. In this context, live link is contrasted with dead link.
