Should i store hashids in database or decode them on every request?

Posted 3 years ago by mtvs_dev

I`m going to use hashids instead of database ids in my urls, should I dedicate a field to them in database table or encode ids to hashids on url generation and decode hashids to ids on incoming requests?
