Urlencode FAQ

Usage from Address Bar

You can use direct access to this page from your browser address bar. Type string that you need to encode/decode with algorithm according to next schema: https://md5calc.com/url/<TYPE:enc|dec>/<PHRASE> For example to visit page that contains encoded "¡Hola!" you can just visit url: https://md5calc.com/url/enc/¡Hola! The another cool thing is that you can specify "json" or "plain" mode into URL and you will get only encoded/decoded in response.
Schema of this future: https://md5calc.com/url/<TYPE:enc|dec>.<OUTPUT:plain|json>/<PHRASE> Example: https://md5calc.com/url/enc.plain/¡Hola! Will output: %C2%A1Hola%21

Usage from Javascript

We have removed CORS restriction so you can use direct access to url encode/decode in your javascript applications via AJAX.


var toEncode = '¡Hola!';
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.onreadystatechange = function () {
  if (xhr.readyState == 4 && xhr.status == 200) {
    console.log('Urlencoded "'+toEncode+'" is "'+JSON.parse(xhr.response)+'"');
xhr.open('GET', 'https://md5calc.com/url/enc.json/'+encodeURIComponent(toEncode), true);
Will output: Urlencoded "¡Hola!" is "%C2%A1Hola%21"

Usage from PHP

You can use direct access to this function in your applications.

PHP Example:

    $str = '¡Hola!';
    $url ='https://md5calc.com/url/enc.plain/'.urlencode($str);
    $urlencoded = file_get_contents($url);
    echo 'Urlencoded "'.$str.'" is "'.$urlencoded.'"';
Will output: Urlencoded "¡Hola!" is "%C2%A1Hola%21"

How to make the same in PHP

    $str = '¡Hola!';
    $urlencodedStr = urlencode($str);
    $urldecodedStr = urldecode($urlencodedStr);
    echo '<pre>';
    echo $str.PHP_EOL
         .' &rarr; '.$urlencodedStr.PHP_EOL
         .' &rarr; '.$urldecodedStr.PHP_EOL
    echo '</pre>';

How to make the same in JavaScript

If you need to encode whole url

var str = 'https://localhost/?param1=¡Hola!&param2=¡Hola!';
var urlencodedStr = encodeURI(str);
var urldecodedStr = decodeURI(urlencodedStr);
console.log('-> ' + urlencodedStr);
console.log('-> ' + urldecodedStr);

If you need to encode value only

var url = 'https://localhost/';
var str = '¡Hola!';
var urlencodedStr = encodeURIComponent(str);
var urldecodedStr = decodeURIComponent(urlencodedStr);
console.log('-> https://localhost/?param1=' + urlencodedStr);
console.log('-> https://localhost/?param1=' + urldecodedStr);
