Encode your URL online - a very useful free service

The web page we are going to write about encodes or decodes a string using URL Encoding. Webmasters would probably know all about this problem, but sometimes it may be useful - for them and for ordinary users as well - to encode or decode URL strings quickly online.

Albion Research: Free URL Encode utility.
Just to be sure: Do you know, what is URL Encoding? It is used when placing text in a query string to avoid it being confused with the URL itself. It is normally used when the browser sends form data to a web server. You may see it in some URLs and it looks like this:

How you can use it
It is very easy to use this service. Just write your string and press URL Encode or URL Decode button. And that is it.

The autors explain, what is done: "URL Encoding replaces “unsafe” characters with ‘%’ followed by their hex equivalent. Characters which need not be escaped are defined in RFC3986 (which replaced RFC2396). They are the 7-bit ASCII alphanumerics and the characters “-._~”. Unicode characters and 8-bit ASCII characters are normally first encoded using UTF-8, as defined in RFC2279." So know you know everything you need to know.

What you should know...
On the same page you can find some links to other useful services.
