I'm trying to echo out a list of domain names in php.  I need to print the sld and tld part separately (example sld=mydomain tld=com), how do I strip the text before and after the period using php?

BTW: Some domains have a 2 letter country code, so I can't just strip the last 4 characters.

$s = 'domain.com';
list($sld, $tld) = explode('.', $s);
echo $sld.'<br>'.$tld;

$array = explode(".",$url);
$firstpart = $array[0];
$lastpart = $array[1];

This only works for a two-part name like the example you gave.

If you need to break out abc.xyz.com into more parts, you do it the same way, but $array will have each part between the periods as a separate element in the array.  You can reassemble the parts however you need.

That was quick.

Both answers work (I went with yodercm's though) and both have the same timestamp, so I'm going to accept multiple solutions.

Thanks guys (or gals).
