Enter the text that you wish to encode or decode:
Welcome to the URL Encoder / Decoder. This great tool is useful at converting characters into a format that is easily recognised and transmittable on to the internet. For example, as you may or may not know but URLs are only able to be sent across the internet using what is known as ASCII character set and since URLs often have characters that are outside the identifiable ASCII set, the URL would then need to be converted into a known or valid ASCII format.
Encoding URLs is important as it helps to avoid unexpected results since the representation of characters differs significantly for each specific code. While Decoding is useful for decoding the URL to get the string representation of the URL before it was encoded for manipulation/other functions in the application.
