For example when I have URL:

https://dirask.com/questions?category=programming

What is the professional name of the parameters we pass after question mark '?'
In this case: 

?category=programming

In this case the variable name is category and value is programming.

You can call it url parameter or request parameter. First one name is most commonly used. Second one name is used by Spring framework.

You can call it url parameter or request parameter.

Wikipedia answer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL

  • An optional query component preceded by a question mark (?), containing a query string of non-hierarchical data. Its syntax is not well defined, but by convention is most often a sequence of attribute–value pairs separated by a delimiter.
Query delimiterExample
Ampersand (&)key1=value1&key2=value2
Semicolon (;)key1=value1;key2=value2
