German term or phrase: weitergehende Spezifizierung
In a user manual for a web content production application. After you have entered a link to a webpage with more information on a certain subject, you can check whether this link object already exu¡ists in the system (a so-called internal check): "Das System sucht sowohl nach einer genauen Entsprechung Ihrer Adresse wie auch nach einer weitergehenden Spezifizierung derselben, so dass Sie also eine möglichst kurze URL angeben sollten (beispielsweise http://www.xyz.de/ statt http://xyz.de/thenews ), wenn Sie sichergehen möchten, alle in Frage kommenden Objekte angezeigt zu bekommen."

English translation:further hierachical subdirectories
Explanation:
URL (Uniform Resource Locator)
- Web address
- starts with http:// (hypertext transfer protocol, which means "language of the Web"), followed first by the subdomain (name of the server that houses the website), then sometimes the folder or directory where the data is kept on the server, then the actual file you are viewing, such as http://www.cybergrrl.com/biz/bizinfo.html

an extended version


Explanation:
As shown in the example, we are comparing the difference between a URL such as www.xyz.de/thenews and www.xyz.de (It seems to me that the 'www' is erroneously omitted the second time round in the original text). The most natural way of describing this would seem to be as an 'extended version'.

have to agree with "further specifications"


Explanation:
since "www" CAN be omitted in some URLs. On the other hand, further specifications (http://www.xyz.de/abc.html) might bring you to the specific page you want.
