Hi Guys,
Using PHP str_replace I'm trying to break down a domain name (ANYdomain1.ANYdomain2) into its parts,
so that I can get this result:
$domainPart1=ANYdomain1';
and
$domainPart2=ANYdomain2';

I also want to delete the "." (dot) between ANYdomain1.ANYdomain2.
I can't find my solution on the web, but I think this is an easy one for the experts.
Thanks in advance,
Sas

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.explode.php will do it.  Use the dot as the string separator.

That said, you might want to think carefully about your test data.  For example, consider these two URLs: www.twitter.com and twitter.com.  What is the exact output you would want from each of those?

Thanks Ray,
I can always address the "www." by starting with this:

$http_host = str_replace('http://www.', '' , $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);
$http_host=str_replace('www.', '',$http_host);

Then following with the EXPLODE you suggested.

Thanks again,
Sas

Thanks for the points - just be careful about the structure you expect to get from URLs.  There are things like domain.com.uk that may produce "interesting" results.

Best regards, ~Ray
