The following code does it for you, you just have to provide column name
SELECT LEFT(YourCol, CHARINDEX('.', YourCol)-1) as part1,
       SUBSTRING(YourCol, CHARINDEX('.',YourCol)+1, CHARINDEX('.',YourCol,CHARINDEX('.',YourCol)+1)-CHARINDEX('.',YourCol)-1) as Part2,
       REVERSE(SUBSTRING(REVERSE(YourCol), CHARINDEX('.',REVERSE(YourCol))+1, CHARINDEX('.',REVERSE(YourCol),CHARINDEX('.',REVERSE(YourCol))+1)-CHARINDEX('.',REVERSE(YourCol))-1)) as Part3,
       RIGHT(RTRIM(YourCol), CHARINDEX('.',REVERSE(RTRIM(YourCol)))-1) as Part4
FROM YourTable
