What is URL Encoding?

Percent-encoding, also known as URL encoding, is a mechanism for encoding information in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) under certain circumstances. Although it is known as URL encoding it is, in fact, used more generally within the main Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) set, which includes both Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and Uniform Resource Name (URN). As such it is also used in the preparation of data of the "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" media type, as is often used in email messages and the submission of HTML form data in HTTP requests.

Instructions:

  • Input a string of text and encode or decode it as you like.
  • Handy for turning encoded JavaScript URLs from complete gibberish into readable gibberish.
  • If you'd like to have the URL Decoder/Encoder for offline use, just view source and save to your hard drive.
