This online URL Encoding/Decoding Tool allows you to convert content between its unencoded and encoded forms. This online tool is convenient when encoding a string to be used in a query part of a URL, as a convenient way to pass variables to the next page. URL encoding converts characters into a format that can be safely transmitted over the Internet. URLs can only be sent over the Internet using the ASCII character-set.
