URL Parser / Query String Splitter

Enter the URL into the box below and hit the green button to parse the URL and split it into its components.

What is This Tool?

It is a handy URL parser that will split up a full URL into its individual components.

On top of splitting up the URL, this tool will also split up any queries contained within it. This is especially useful for developers who are debugging what is being sent server-side but are having a hard time seeing mistakes due to the complexity of the query.

Here is an example output this tool will produce:

What's a URI?

Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) are used to identify "names" or "resources". There are two forms of URI's, URL's and URN's.

What is a URL?

URL is an accronym for Uniform Resource Locator. And as the name suggests is in the full addess to a resource. Usually they use the HTTPS protocal, however, this not always the case.

What is a URN?

Uniform Resource Names work like URL's except they are location independent.
