Yes, they are case sensitive when user tires load a page. But they are same in eyes of google. I mean when you try to load site.com/something.html and site.com/SOMEthing.html they will be different for eyes. But when you search in google, they will point to same page URL’s are case sensitive?

Having them both like that will cause duplicate content. You can solve this with .htaccess or your nginx vhost file or similar for whatever hosting software you use.

If I would have 100s of url having same issue then how can I use .htaccess and .htaccess will be restricting entire page to crawl.

Hello,
Urls are case insensitive. Its like fixing a name to a particular person, he will be known by that name till death unless its changed by legal methods. Similarly if a url is made in caps,its not an issue. But basically we don't find urls in caps.

dennis123 "url is made in caps,its not an issue" till you don't have same url with lower case and generally people type in lower case therefor its important.

Domains are not case sensitive, but whatever text follows a domain name after the / is.

I'm sure they will be classed as the same page they most likely use a string lower function on the page url.

if two different url pointing same pg would be bad one rt? and many had replied that both URL will be different in eyes of Google to hence duplicate URL issue will rise.

Urls are case insensitive. Whether it is in small or caps, both are same.

both are same!! I think Google will be taking both url as two different identity, duplicate url issue will arise.
