About URL Encoder / Decoder

URL Encoder / Decoder tool is used for encoding or decoding a string of text. To ensure interoperability around the world, URLs have been encoded in a uniform manner. For mapping the wide range of characters used across the world with 60 characters in a URL a two-step process is followed. First, a character string is converted into a sequence of bytes through the use of UTF-8 encoding. Then each byte which is not an ASCII letter or digit is converted into % HH, where HH is regarded as the hexadecimal value of the byte. All the offending characters are replaced with a % and a two digit hexadecimal value that stands for the character in proper ISO character set. Use this URL Encoder/Decoder for free especially when adding special characters to a URL parameter.
