An endpoint is a specific URL where your application can request or send data. It acts like a distinct address in an API that defines one particular operation or data set. For example, in a weather app, one endpoint might provide current weather data, while another could offer forecasts. When you interact with an endpoint, you're essentially asking the API to perform a specific task, like retrieving, updating, or deleting data.

Each endpoint supports different request types, such as GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, HEAD and OPTIONS.
