It is very easy to know URL parts or URL or URL protocol by javascript. No need to write so many lines of code or bunch of code, Just a simple and single line for each one. So I am explaining here one by one. for example if we have URL then below is explanation that how we can get URL parts and URl protocol by Javascript :

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
alert(window.location.protocol); // this will alert protocol of link and in our example it will alert http
alert(; // this will alert host name of link and in our example it will alert hacking e
alert(window.location.pathname); // this will alert path name of link and in our example it will alert blog/example.html
