If no URL is specified, they will be taken to a generic page thanking them for entering a member profile. For the “Show confirming web page” If you set it to yes your users will see a quick confirmation page after creating or editing the member profile, informing them that they were successful. They will then be taken immediately to the destination URL page if one is set, otherwise they are taken to a generic “thank you” page.
