What is URL Encoding

URL encoding is the practice of translating unprintable characters or characters with special meaning within URLs to a representation that is unambiguous and universally accepted by web browsers and servers.

Those who are in the field of online marketing or social media marketing must be aware, how difficult it is to find a unique but small SEO friendly URL to promote your product on various social media platforms like FB, Instagram, especially Twitter where you just can’t express your full URL & head line in few characters, that’s where our URL encoding decoding tool comes in real handy.

URL Encoding is a long & hectic process of converting unreadable character strings into valid human readable URL format, here from valid URL format we mean the URL should contain only "alphabets | digits or numbers | safe | extra | escape" characters only.

In simple words, it can be said that URL encoding is used to convert special type of characters into a much simpler standard form which have an alternate meaning. In this modern age, most of our net savvy readers are aware of special characters like ‘/', '.', '=', '+', '#' etc. these are needed to be decoded into proper form else your website can go nuts & its behavior can change drastically.

Normally, this process of conversion of URL in another form is quite complex, there is a long list of characters (almost 60) used in this decoding process, it involves a typical 2 step conversion & verification process:

1. To convert the string into bytes (UTF 8 code).

2. Further transform these bytes into ASCII letters or digits to %HH, where HH is the hexadecimal value of the byte.

Let’s take an example string: “François”, it will be encoded as: “Fran%C3%A7ois”

(The word "ç" here is encoded as two bytes C3 (hex) and A7 (hex), which will then further be converted into three characters "%c3" and "%a7" respectively.)

Its use is very simple, just put the URL in empty space provided, press submit & see the magic.
