In this short article, We will write simple and easy code to get the domain name from URL by using some predefined PHP function.

First we need to parse URL using parse_url(). so we can get the array from parse URL and now we can fetch the specific host from the array using $parse[‘host’].

$host = $parse['host'];
$host = str_ireplace('www.', '', $host);
