What is URL Encoding?

URL encoding, also known as percent encoding, is a method used to represent reserved and non-ASCII characters in URLs. Since URLs can only contain a limited set of characters, URL encoding ensures that all characters can be safely embedded in a URL without causing issues.

How Does It Work?

URL encoding replaces unsafe or reserved characters with a percentage sign (`%`) followed by two hexadecimal digits. For instance, a space, which is not allowed in a URL, is encoded as `%20`. This way, characters that have special meanings in URLs, like `?`, `&`, and `#`, or characters not in the standard ASCII set, can be safely included.

Common Use Cases:


While URL encoding is essential for creating functional URLs, it's not a form of encryption. Encoded data can be easily decoded, so sensitive information should not be sent directly in URLs, even if it's encoded.
