// BREAK THE HOST NAME APART AT THE DOTS
$x = explode('.', $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]);
$subdomain = $x[0];

If you have a separate URL in your code, first explode on the // to isolate the information that is in $_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]
$url = 'http://subdomain.domain.com'
$x = explode('//', $url);
$host = $x[1];
 
$x = explode('.', $host);
$subdomain = $x[0];

Open in new window
