you mean the last "06" only?
$var='site.com/?d=YS98IIR06';

If yes and you want to limit to two digits only
preg_match('#site.com/[?]=YS98IIR\d\d#', $var)

If you want to limit to at least one digit:
preg_match('#site.com/[?]=YS98IIR\d+#', $var)


zero or more digits:
preg_match('#site.com/[?]=YS98IIR\d*#', $var)

Or if the entire value of the variable can change:
preg_match('#site.com/\?d=[^&]+#', $var);

Note that we can provide all sorts of different patterns that will match - what's also important though is what you want to NOT match. You might like to describe that too.
