A SPARQL Endpoint is a location on the internet—more formally described as a Point of Presence on an HTTP network—that is identified by a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and is capable of receiving and processing SPARQL queries. A user can access the collection of triples that you have in a triplestore through a SPARQL Endpoint: this is the doorway that connects people to your data. A SERVICE clause in the body of a SPARQL query can also be used to call on a remote SPARQL Endpoint.
