URL encoder

What is URL encoder

URL encoding is a technique used to convert characters into a format that can be transmitted over the internet. Certain characters, such as spaces or symbols, are not allowed in URLs, as they may have special meanings or cause issues during transmission. URL encoding replaces such characters with a "%" followed by their ASCII value in hexadecimal. For example, a space is encoded as "%20" and a question mark is encoded as "%3F". This ensures that the URL remains valid and can be properly transmitted and interpreted by web browsers and servers. Programming languages typically provide built-in functions or libraries to handle URL encoding and decoding.
