Replacing Parameters in a URL

I have users entering a URL, and I need to make sure it is in the following format:
http://api.somewhere.com/etc/....

people seem to be entering in formats like this:
http://www.somewhere.com/etc/....
http://www.wrongname.com/etc/....

The 'etc/....' part changes from page to page

So I am looking for someway to make sure the URL is always in the correct format....

Thanks!

Here's a snippet of code that shows how to use preg_replace to do this.


<?php
echo preg_replace("/http:\/\/\w+\.\w+\.\w+\/(.*)/", "http://api.somewhere.com/$1", "http://www.somewhere.com/stuff/index.html");
?>
