Help for: Encode/Decode URL

The URL encoding is a protocol that maps non permitted characters for URLs (Uniform Resource Locator).

To encode a regular text to URL encoding, type in the box on top and click the Encode button.

To decode a URL encoded text to regular text, type in the box on the bottom and click the Decode button.

Notice: Under URL encoding a space character translates to %20. In order to make URLs easier to read it is widely accepted to use the plus sign (+) instead. This works perfectly in website URLs. However, if you plan to use this encoding in an HTML attribute it is recommended to change + back to %20.
