PHP, SOAP, Webservice, WSDL, URL format, Uncaught SoapFault exception

The following error occurs when attempting to create a soap client in PHP if the url does not have ?wsdl at the end.

Fatal error: Uncaught SoapFault exception: [WSDL] SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from '' : Premature end of data in tag html line 3 in /.../codefile.php:502 Stack trace: #0 /.../codefile.php(502): SoapClient->SoapClient('https://testsite...') #1 {main} thrown in /.../codefile.php on line 502

For example:

$client = new SoapClient('');
(no error)
