URL Encoder / Decoder

URL Encoder / Decoder is a simple free online tool that can both encodes URL or Text to Internet friendly format or decodes encoded string back to original format.

URL Encoding (Percent Encoding)

URLs can only be sent over the Internet using the ASCII character-set. Some characters cannot be part of a URL (for example, the space) and some other characters have a special meaning in a URL: for example, the character # can be used to further specify a subsection (or fragment) of a document. URL encoding replaces unsafe ASCII characters with a "%" followed by two hexadecimal digits (for example, the space is encoded as "%20", # is encoded as "%23").
