URL Encode

Decode Any URL Easy & Free

What is a URL encoder?

A URL encoder is a tool that can be used to encode a string of text so that it can be safely included in a URL.


URL encoders replace special characters in a string of text with encoded values that are safe to use in a URL. This helps to ensure that the URL will not be broken when special characters are used in the string of text.


URL encoders can be used to encode any string of text, but they are often used to encode data that is being submitted to a web server via a URL. This includes data such as form data and query strings.


URL encoding is a mechanism for translating unprintable or special characters to a universally accepted format by web servers and browsers. Characters that are not in the standard ASCII character set are replaced with a % followed by a two-digit hexadecimal representation of the character. For example, spaces are replaced with %20, + is replaced with %2B, and / is replaced with %2F.


Encode Any URL

Several online tools can encode any URL. A quick Google search will turn up several options.


One popular option is the URL Encode/Decode tool on the WebToolsLand website. This tool allows you to enter a URL and select whether you want to encode or decode any URL. It then provides the results in plain text.

How does URL Encoder Works?

The URL Encoder works by taking a string of text and converting it into a percent-encoded string. Percent-encoded strings are used in URLs to indicate that a character is reserved. When a character is percent-encoded, it is replaced with a percent sign (%) followed by two hexadecimal digits that represent the character in the ASCII character set.


For example, the string "Hello world" would be encoded as "Hello%20world". The space character is encoded as %20 because it is a reserved character in URLs. The percent sign (%) is also a reserved character and is encoded as %25.


URL encoding is often used when submitting form data to a server. Form data is typically encoded in an application/x-www-form-urlencoded format. In this format, each key-value pair is separated by an ampersand (&) and each key is separated from its value by an equal sign (=). Special characters are percent-encoded.

For example, the following string would be encoded as "name=John+Doe&age=32":

name=John Doe&age=32


URL encoding is also used in the query string of a URL. The query string is the part of the URL that comes after the question mark (?). It typically contains a list of key-value pairs that are used to pass information to a server. Special characters in the query string are also percent-encoded.

For example, the following URL contains a query string with two key-value pairs:
