URL encoder

URL encoding is a method of converting text data into a format that can be safely transmitted over the internet. It involves replacing certain characters, such as spaces or special characters, with a specific sequence of characters that are recognized and understood by web browsers and servers.

A URL encoder is a tool that performs this conversion process automatically. It takes a string of text as input and replaces any characters that could potentially cause issues, such as spaces or punctuation marks, with a specific set of characters known as "percent encoding". The resulting output is a URL-safe string that can be transmitted without any issues.

URL encoding is commonly used in web applications for passing parameters and data through URLs. It is also used to encode non-ASCII characters in URLs, since not all browsers and servers support non-ASCII characters in URLs.
