This online URL Encoder/Decoder tool is extremely helpful when adding special characters to a URL parameter which is also known often referred to as percent encoding. The process of URL encoding involves replacement of unallowable characters with a % (percent sign) and additional two hexadecimal values. While URL decoding works if you want to know an email campaign or the newsletter’s source.

URL Encoding is the process of converting a string into valid URL format. Valid URL format means that the URL contains only what is termed "alpha | digit | safe | extra | escape" characters. URL encoding is needed to convert the special characters to a standard form which otherwise may have some different meaning. Example of special characters are '/', '.', '=', '+', '#' etc. which if not encoded properly may change the URL behavior. Further, URL decoding means to convert the URL into a human-readable form.
