Browsers request web pages by using a Uniform Resource Locator (URL). The URL is the address of a web page (example: https://extendsclass.com).
URL encoding (Percent Encoding) is a mechanism for converting URLS into a format that can be transmitted over the Internet.
It converts the characters into a bytes using the UTF-8 encoding, and it replaces unsafe ASCII characters with a "%" character followed by two hexadecimal digits. The two hexadecimal digits represent the numeric value of the unsafe character.

Sample: / is a reserved character, it is used for path component of a URI. / is converted to %2F.
