I know I can use the package hyperref for urls, but I want is to create a definition that uses this and assigns a color, for example


would write Something in crimson color linked to the url (and assume default urls aren't in crimson)

    what about \usepackage[colorlinks=true,urlcolor=magenta]{hyperref} and \href{http://www.myurl.com}{something} ?

You can use hyperref options, and locally modify it when needed.




    Here is \href{http://www.myurl.com}{my link}.

    Here is \myhref{http://www.myurl.com}{my special link}.

    And here,  \href{http://www.myurl.com}{another normal link}.
