Default How do i retrieve the Domain name from a url

Hello all.

I want to some how with the Referring URL to my site, extract the domain name as easily as possible. Is there a way to do this without writing a whacky reg ex or am i stuck with trying to figure out how to do this?

Does there exist an object that i can use to do the following:

Dim sURL = request.URLReferrer

Dim someObj as SomeObject


resonse.write("<BR> Domain Name = " & someObj.DomainName)

sorry for the "someObject" naming convention, but i'm just trying to figure out what object(s) i can use in order to gain information from a requested URL because i just want the easiest possible way to get a result of MyDomain.com from


thanks for all your help in advance.

Create an instance of the Uri class with the url and access the hostname with the Uri's class Host property.
Dim baseUri As New Uri("http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/u/s/a/index.php")
