Hello everyone, please help me figure out the problem.

This is a tricky question because I couldn't find anything on the net. I know how to encode / decode, I do not know where to do it. At what stage.
The Django assembly is standard, it works fine on the local server, not on the hosting. The detailed situation is below.

Hosting Support Conversation:
Me: "On the local server everything works, but you don't. What is the reason?"
Support:  "The web server cannot work with Cyrillic in links directly for work, it is converted accordingly. Therefore, when you open http: // dictionary.rf/pulpation, the web server converts pulpation to %25d0%25bf%25d1%2583%25d0%25bb%25d1%258c%25d0%25bf%25d0%25b0%25d1%2586%25d0%25b8%25d1%258f.

Scripts of your site search in the database by the encoded value:
SELECT `dictionary_d_word`.`id`, `dictionary_d_word`.`author_id`, `dictionary_d_word`.`word`, `dictionary_d_word`.`word_url`, `dictionary_d_word`.`description`, `dictionary_d_word`.`created_date`, `dictionary_d_word`.`published_date` FROM `dictionary_d_word` WHERE `dictionary_d_word`.`word_url` = '%25d0%25bf%25d1%2583%25d0%25bb%25d1%258c%25d0%25bf%25d0%25b0%25d1%2586%25d0%25b8%25d1%258f' LIMIT 21

To avoid errors, you should decode the request value before executing the request, and then execute the request. "

And I have a logical question:
Where to decode this data?

I think you've found the wrong mailing list for this post. This mailing list is for discussing the development of Django itself, not for support using Django. This means the discussions of bugs and features in Django itself, rather than in your code using it. People on this list are unlikely to answer your support query with their limited time and energy.

For support, please follow the "Getting Help" page: . This will help you find people who are willing to support you, and to ask your question in a way that makes it easy for them to answer.

Thanks for your understanding and all the best,
