What is URL Encoding/Decoding?

URL encoding, or percent-encoding, is a method to encode information in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) in a secure and reliable way. Encoding converts reserved and non-ASCII characters in URLs into a uniform format which all web browsers and servers accept and understand. Although this process is known as URL encoding, it makes use of the main URI set which includes both Uniform Resource Name (URN) and Uniform Resource Locator (URL). URL encoding also plays an important part in preparing data of media type “application/x-www-form-unrlencoded” when submitting HTML form data via HTTP requests.
The inverse process of URL encoding is URL decoding. URL decoding is used to parse path parameters or query strings that are passed in URLs, and to decode HTML form parameters sent with the MIME format “application/x-www-form-unrlencoded” when submitting data with HTML forms.
