Class java.net.InetAddress will give you the tools you need to obtain the host name, specificaly:

getHostName public String getHostName()
 
 Gets the hostname for this address; also the key in the hashtable. If the host is equal to null, then this address refers to any of the local machine's available network addresses.  

For the domain name, best approach would be to use Java.net.Socket.getInetAddress()returns an InetAddress from which you can retrieve the IP adress (for a call to an NSLookup Server) or you can use the Socket's toString() method to obtain the Domain name, provided its available in the URL and not an IP number.
