HTML <base> Tag

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The base tag in HTML is used to set the base URL for an HTML document. For example, base URL as https://example.com/tutorials for all the relative URLs like /html, /java, /jquery etc., which are eventually −

https://example.com/tutorials/html
https://example.com/tutorials/java
https://example.com/tutorials/jquery

Note: The <base> tag has no end tag i.e. no need to end it with </base>

Following are the attributes −

  • href: It sets the base URL for all relative URLs in the page
  • target: Default target for all hyperlinks and forms. The values can be _blank, _parent, _self, _top and framename.

Let us now see an example to implement the <base> element−
