What is URL Encoder ?

URL specification RFC 1738 only allow small set of characters that can be used in a URL. Those characters are:

  • A - Z (ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ)
  • a - z (abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz)
  • 0 - 9 (0123456789)
  • $
  • -
  • _
  • .
  • +
  • !
  • *
  • '
  • (
  • )

In order to use other characters (other than above) in URL we need to encode them to a % and a two digit hexadecimal value. Our Online Url Decoder service allow you to decode URL which are already encoded.


How URL Decoder Works ?

URL Decoder works by replacing a % and two digit hexadecimal value to ASCII characters . Following are some examples:

  • %2B (converted to) +
  • %26 (converted to) &
  • %24 (converted to) $
  • %40 (converted to) @
  • %3A (converted to) :
  • %2C (converted to) ,
  • %3B (converted to) ;
  • %3D (converted to) =
  • %3F (converted to) ?
