Since URLs give the location of an internet resource,

"the document is located at www.example.com/ark"

is correct. If instead of the URL you were using the name of the website, eg. 'Ark', then you could say:

"the document is located on Ark"

I would say that "at" is your best choice because it is "at" a particular location.
