Default Is this routing?

A basic question, what is the correct terminology for the path a users request follows to access a website/URL? Is this routing or is it called something different? I am talking for users in a corporate network accessing the web, not from a home PC and personal router. Say user X wants to access website L that request I assume goes down a path before it is actioned? What is this process called?

And typically what “path” does this request go down before it is actioned, i.e. what network infrastructure/equipment does it pass through, and what kind of log is kept on this infrastructure/equiptment and the subsequent URL returned in their browser?
