function url(){
        $protocol = ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] && $_SERVER['HTTPS'] != "off") ? "https" : "http";
        $protocol = 'http';
    return $protocol . "://" . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];

For example with the function above, it works fine if I work with the same directory, but if I make a sub directory, and work in it, it will give me the location of the sub directory also for example. I just want but it gives me if I'm working in the folder sub. If I'm using the main directory,the function works fine. Is there an alternative to $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']?

Or how could I fix my function/code to get the main url only? Thanks.




echo $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']; //Outputs

Base URL in JavaScript

You can access the current url quite easily in JavaScript with window.location

You have access to the segments of that URL via this locations object. For example:

// This article:
// https://.com/questions/21246818/how-to-get-the-base-url-in-javascript

var base_url = window.location.origin;
// "http://.com"

var host =;
// .com

var pathArray = window.location.pathname.split( '/' );
// ["", "questions", "21246818", "how-to-get-the-base-url-in-javascript"]

In Chrome Dev Tools, you can simply enter window.location in your console and it will return all of the available properties.

On Mac OS X environment variables available in Terminal and for the normal applications can be different, check the related question for the solution how to make them similar.

Note that this solution will not work on Mountain Lion (10.8).

You could do this:

$urlData = parse_url($url);

$host = $urlData['host'];

** Update **

The best way I can think of is to have a mapping of all the TLDs that you want to handle, since certain TLDs can be tricky (

// you can add more to it if you want
$urlMap = array('com', '');

$host = "";
$url = "";

$urlData = parse_url($url);
$hostData = explode('.', $urlData['host']);
$hostData = array_reverse($hostData);

if(array_search($hostData[1] . '.' . $hostData[0], $urlMap) !== FALSE) {
  $host = $hostData[2] . '.' . $hostData[1] . '.' . $hostData[0];
} elseif(array_search($hostData[0], $urlMap) !== FALSE) {
  $host = $hostData[1] . '.' . $hostData[0];

echo $host;
