About URL Encoder / Decoder

This online tool by can be used to encode and decode text or URL. For universal interoperability, URIs need to be encoded in the same way. Lots of characters exist globally, around 60 characters of all this are authorized for a URL. There are two steps to encode a text or url:

  • UTF-8 encoding is used to convert a group of characters into a byte series.
  • Convert every byte without ASCII letters or numbers to %HH, where HH is the hexadecimal value of the byte.

For Example the word “Français” will be encoded as “Fran%C3%A7ais” (The "ç" two bytes are encoded in UTF-8 as C3 (hex) and A7 (hex), which are then written as three characters "% c3" and "% a7", respectively).
