From what I understand, the URL is a uniform resource locator, which means there is uniformity in the format of the website addresses. Am I right on this?
I am confused with url structutre for a website, I don't know it is better to have www as prefix or not, http or https, .html or non html...etc I am building new websites and it would be great if I can build right URL structure for them.
for example, which is in my mind now

Code:
https://www.example.com
https://www.example.com/123-category-name
https://www.example.com/456-post-name.html
Is this right way to have perfect URLs for a website?

What are your comments?

you have choose to use or not www on your address, it's just a choice, but when you choose it, make sure the other version is redirected.
https is better than http, not only because google is ranking https website better, but because it provide your all the new features of HTTP/2
And for the .html at the end of your url, it's not needed, and often used by CMS with particular rewrite rules. If your CMS support full rewrite, just use the postname in the url. Post/tag/category ID is not needed.
For me a good structure will be :
Code:
https://yoursite.tld
https://yoursite.tld/title-of-your-article/
https://yoursite.tld/tag/yourtag/
https://yoursite.tld/category/your-category/
