<title>Url validation using regex</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
    function validate() {
        var url = document.getElementById("url").value;
        var pattern = /(ftp|http|https):\/\/(\w+:{0,1}\w*@)?(\S+)(:[0-9]+)?(\/|\/([\w#!:.?+=&%@!\-\/]))?/;
        if (pattern.test(url)) {
            alert("Url is valid");
            return true;
            alert("Url is not valid!");

url pattern is like HYPERLINK


In pattern = /(ftp|http|https):\/\/(\w+:{0,1}\w*@)?(\S+)(:[0-9]+)?(\/|\/([\w#!:.?+=&%@!-\/]))?/;

/../(forward slashes) is used to quote your regular expression.

() is used to group the content.

| is used for or condition

\/ backslash consider / as a literal .

\w+ for one or more alphanumeric value.

{0,1} shows the range of content having length between 0 to 1.

* matches the preceding character zero or more time.

[..] matches any letter enclosed with in.

+ shows that preceding character come 1 or more times.

. Shows that \ will treat . as a literal.

$ is used for ending the string.

test() method takes one argument and check that to the pattern.
