Below is the explanation from Wikipedia

Percent-encoding, also known as URL encoding, is a mechanism for encoding information in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) under certain circumstances. Although it is known as URL encoding it is, in fact, used more generally within the main Uniform Resource Identifier(URI) set, which includes both Uniform Resource Locator(URL) and Uniform Resource Name(URN).
