About this tool


Since all characters cannot be represented in an URL, a scheme called URL encoding (also sometimes called percent-encoding) is used where the characters that cannot be represented are converted into a %xx format, where xx is the corresponding hexadecimal value of the character to be represented.

Some common examples of characters that have to be URL encoded are spaces, apostrophes and characters of non-English languages.

This tool can encode text to the URL encoded format as well as decode URL encoded text.

You can find more information on the Wikipedia page on percent encoding.
