The documentURI property of the Document interface returns the document location as a string.

As originally defined in DOM3 this attribute read/write. In the DOM4 specification it is read only.

Syntax

var string = document.documentURI;

Notes

HTML documents have a document.URL property which returns the same value. Unlike URL, documentURI is available on all types of documents.
