How to Use the URL Encoder / Decoder

URL encoding is generally used when the browser sends data to a web server. You can use our tool to automatically URL encode or decode a string of text for world wide interoperability.

  • Step #1: Copy and paste the URL or string of text that you wish to encode or decode.
  • Step #2: Encode the text: ‘Reserved symbols’ will be transformed into '%' symbols and two-digit hexadecimal values.

Why Url Encoding and Decoding is important?

URLs can only have certain characters from the standard 128 character ASCII set. Reserved characters that do not belong to this set must be encoded. This means that we need to encode these characters when passing into a URL For more information visit the wikipedia.

Some characters cannot be part of a URL (for example, the space) and some other characters have a special meaning in a URL. In HTML forms, the character = is used to separate a name from a value. The URI generic syntax uses URL encoding to deal with this problem, while HTML forms make some additional substitutions rather than applying percent encoding for all such characters. For example, spaces in a string are either encoded with %20 or replaced with the plus sign (+). If you use a pipe character (|) as a separator, be sure to encode the pipe as %7C. A comma in a string should be encoded as %2C. It is recommended you use your platform's normal URL building libraries to automatically encode your URLs, to ensure the URLs are properly escaped for your platform. Additionally, URLs are limited to 2048 characters for each request. Be aware of this limit when constructing your URLs. For more info read then urlencode-blog.
