Do lowercase and capitalization matter in Internet addresses?

When typing an internet address, the address must be match in order for it to work. Sometimes internet addresses contains lowercase and uppercase.

When typing an Internet address, capitalization may be important. An Internet address is only case sensitive for everything after the domain name.
For example, it does not matter if you use uppercase or lowercase with "computerhope.com," it still reaches the same page. However, when typing
the name of the page, file, or directory in the URL, it is case sensitive.

Example:

http://www.computerhope.com/jargon.htm is different than http://www.computerhope.com/JARGON.HTM

A url with

http://sosc.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1158141&lis=1&kntae1158141=88225B046D364353BA70C450054A8124&supId=440730363

is different than http://sosc.kintera.org/faf/donorreg/donorpledge.asp?ievent=1158141&lis=1&kntae1158141=88225b046d364353ba70c450054a8124&supid=440730363
