A URL can only be composed of a limited number of characters: 10 digits (0-9), 26 lowercase letters (az), 26 uppercase letters (AZ), and some special characters' - ,. , _ , ~ ,? , # ,% '
To write other characters, use URL encoding, writing them with the character % as %code.
A URL can be split down into several parts:
Example: here (link)
|Scheme||http or https|
|Port (optional)||80 or 443|
|Query (after the "?")||q=test&hl=en|
|Fragment (after "#")||id|
The contents of the query string (query_string) can also be decomposed
Example: q=test&hl=en has 2 parameters, q which has the value test and hl which has the value en
This work is usually done by a URL parser, present on browsers, and on this dCode page.
By default in a URL, only alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) are allowed as well as a short list - _ . ! ~ * '(). All other characters must be encoded with a %. An exception for the space character that can be encoded with a +.
More generally any character can be encoded in HTML4 with its ASCII code (more precisely Windows-1252 encoding) and since HTML5 in UTF-8.
