In terms of computing, URL stands for 'Uniform Resource Locator'. It is also often referred to as 'Universal Resource Locator' instead. The Princeton dictionary online defines an URL as 'the address of a web page on the world wide web'. Therefore a 'company URL' refers to the web address used by a business for their website. The company URL for the Coca Cola Company, for instance, is www.coca-cola.com.
The first part of a web address is called the 'protocol identifier' - this indicates what protocol to use. The second part is referred to as the 'resource name' - it specifies the IP address or domain name at which the resource is located. A colon and two forward slashes will separate the protocol identifier from the resource name.

A URL is a form of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that specifies where a known resource is available and the mechanism to retrieve it. URI is the generic term for all types of names and addresses referring to objects on the World Wide Web.

According to Wikipedia, the URL was created in 1994 by the British physicist and computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee, who is also widely credited as being the inventor of the World Wide Web. The format combines the previous system of domain names with 'Unix file path' syntax (the use of forward slashes to separate folder and file names).

In the modern day, almost every company and business will have some kind of online presence to help represent and advertise their business and the work that they do. Company URLs will often form a large part of a company's advertising strategies. Some companies indeed use their company URL as their trading name. An example of this would be the Jersey-based online retailer Play.com.

It's just the address of a web page, so it helps people find the company on the internet. It's really important to promote your business on the internet, so many companies develop websites analyzing product page design best practices and coming up with the most interesting content to attract visitors and turn them into customers.
