Text url encoder tool What is a text url encoder?
With this tool you can URL-escape text. URL-escaping is also known as URL-encoding and also percent encoding. This escaping mechanism lets you share text as valid URI and URN resources. Some of the characters in these resources have a special meaning and they get encoded as percent sign followed by one or two digits that encode the character's value. Textabulous!
