About URL Encoder / Decoder

Online URL Encoder / Decoder

This online tool encode or decode a string of text. For worldwide usage, URIs have to be encoded uniformly. To corelate the wide range of characters used worldwide into the 60 or so allowed characters in a URI, a two-step process is used:

  • Convert the character string into a sequence of bytes using the UTF-8 encoding
  • Convert each byte that is not an ASCII letter or digit to %HH, where HH is the hexadecimal value of the byte

 

What is URL encoding?

URL encoding stands for encoding certain characters in a URL by replacing them with one or more character triplets that consist of the percent character "%" followed by two hexadecimal digits. The two hexadecimal digits of the triplet(s) represent the numeric value of the replaced character.
