user@testdomain.net
  Sample output:
mywebsite

testdomain

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Given a web address or URL, will strip out everything but the domain name. Works for many "country" addresses as well (example: "https://photos.mydomain.com.au/" resolves to "mydomain").

Function updated 2008-03-08 to properly capture domains like "my-multi-word-domain-name.com", and is now commented.
