Extracts the top level domain (TLD) from the URL given.

Project description

Extracts the top level domain (TLD) from the URL given. List of TLD names is taken from Mozilla.

Optionally raises exceptions on non-existing TLDs or silently fails (if fail_silently argument is set to True). Knows about active and inactive TLDs. If only active TLDs shall be matched against, active_only argument shall be set to True (default - False).

Installation

Latest stable version on PyPI:

$ pip install tld

Latest development version:

$ pip install -e hg+http://bitbucket.org/barseghyanartur/tld#egg=tld

Usage example

To get the top level domain name from the URL given:

from tld import get_tld
print get_tld("http://www.google.co.uk")
# 'google.co.uk'

print get_tld("http://www.google.idontexist", fail_silently=True)
# None

If you wish, you could get the result as an object:

from tld import get_tld
res = get_tld("http://some.subdomain.google.co.uk", as_object=True)
print res
# 'google.co.uk'

print res.subdomain
# 'some.subdomain'

print res.domain
# 'google'

print res.suffix
# 'co.uk'

print res.tld
# 'google.co.uk'

To update/sync the tld names with the most recent version run the following from your terminal:

$ update-tld-names

or simply do:

from tld.utils import update_tld_names
update_tld_names()

Troubleshooting

If somehow domain names listed here are not recognised, make sure you have the most recent version of TLD names in your virtual environment:

$ update-tld-names
