In simple words, hyperlink is a word, phrase, or image that you may click on to jump to a new document or a new section within the current document. They are found in nearly all Web pages, allowing users to click their way from page to page.

Text hyperlinks are often blue and underlined, but don’t have to be. When you move the cursor over a hyperlink, whether it is text or an image, the arrow should change to a small hand pointing at the link. When you click it, a new page or place in the current page will open.

A hyperlink, also known as a link, is a clickable element, usually underlined and shown in a different color, that redirects the user to another web page, document, or a specific location within the same page. Hyperlinks are used to navigate between different pages on the internet and provide a way for users to access additional information or resources.

Hyperlinks are typically created using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and can be added to text, images, or other elements on a webpage. The HTML code for creating a hyperlink is the anchor tag <a> and the attribute "href" which specifies the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or the location of the webpage that the link points to.

For example:
<a href="https://www.example.com">This is an example link</a>
