Hi guys,

Is it possible for PHP to strip down an email address to the name of a domain name.

E.g.

info@domainname.com -> domainname

So it strips off everything infront of the @ symbol (including the @ symbol)
And also strips off everything after the name in the domain name, so no .com.etc (no extensions)

Need one simple line of code in PHP to do this if possible.

Thanks

<?php

$email = "info@domainname.com";

$domain = preg_replace( '!^.+?@(.+?)$!', '$1', $email );

echo "Domain is $domain";

another way is , use explode()

$pizza  = "info@domainname.com";
$pieces = explode("@", $pizza);

echo $pieces[1]; // domainname.com

My version of the solution would be this:

$domain = end(explode('@', $email_address));

The original request was to not have any extensions.  Expanding the code from bportlock, here's what you want, all be it in multiple lines::::
<?php

$email = "info@domainname.com";

$domain = preg_replace( '!^.+?@(.+?)$!', '$1', $email );
$bits = explode('.', $domain);
$domain = $bits[(count($bits) -2)];

echo "Domain is $domain";

Open in new window

Ahh, good point about the "no extensions" part.  In that case my one-liner would be this:

$domain = current(explode('.', end(explode('@', $email_address))));

But that said, I am not sure of the value of discarding the TLD.  foo.com and foo.org are different URLs, as different as google.com and yahoo.com.  Email will be routed by different MX records.  Throwing away the TLD is akin to a mung operation -- we try to avoid those in professional programming.
