System Design

Base 62

  • Encodes to [a-zA-Z0-9] which works well for urls, eliminating the need for escaping special characters
  • Only one hash result for the original input and and the operation is deterministic (no randomness involved)
  • Base 64 is another popular encoding but provides issues for urls because of the additional + and / characters
