Enter the text that you wish to encode or decode:
With URL encoding and decoding, characters with special meanings can be passed in a form that is parsed as plain data. URL encoding converts prohibited characters in URLs into equivalent characters; URL decoding changes the encoding.
The URL decoder tool takes a URL-encoded character string and converts it back to its unencoded format. The URL decode tool is handy when you have character-encoded body text, including URLs, and want to see how the body text looks like plain text.
When decoding, you can safely specify the full URL - the URL decoder assumes that only the parameter value has been encoded, so it ignores the rest of the URL. Just paste your URL into the form below, click the "Decode URL" button and you'll get an unescaped URL.
Strictly speaking, you should always URL encode, especially if your links or text contain non-alphabetic characters, numbers, or special characters used outside of normal contexts. If you want to escape 1, 2, or 3 characters to escape some reserved characters in the URL, you need to encode them. Any characters outside this character set must be encoded or escaped before they can be used in URLs.
Some characters are "reserved" and must be encoded in order for the server to correctly interpret the URL. According to RFC3986, characters in a URL must be taken from the unreserved and reserved ASCII character set (or the percent sign used to encode percent). The URL usually contains a letter or non-alphanumeric character, which will be encoded in ``%'' (percent sign) followed by alphanumeric text.
In this article, we'll focus on encoding/decoding URL or shape data to make it compliant and broadcast correctly on the web. In this tutorial, we saw how to encode and decode data so that it can be properly transmitted and interpreted. In this article, you'll learn how to encode a string so that it can be safely entered into a URL.
Many times they create a URL string with query parameters, and in order to understand it, the response server has to decode that URL. You just need to type or paste a string into the text input area, URL Encoder will automatically convert your string to URL encoded format in real time. Syntax decodeURIComponent (encoded_string_uri_component) decodeURI (full_encoded_string_uri) Encoding special characters Decoding these characters requires the string encodeURIComponent (url). In the code snippet above, we can see that when we used the encodePathSegment method, it returned the encoded value, and the + is not encoded because it is the value character in the Path component.
