Extracting the first section of a url from a full address...

An easy one...
Using php I'd like to extract main section of a URL from the full address in the simplest way possible...

For example, getting 'www.leplop.com' from 'http://www.leplop.com/blah/anything/'

It preferably must work with any type of subdomain and TLD.

Regards,
Pip

$url = "http://www.leplop.com/blah/anything/";
echo $url."<br>";
$url = findDomain($url);
echo $url."<br>";
