    Try using nametop.location.host, something like this:

    HTML Code:
    <script language = "JavaScript">
    function name ()
    {
    alert (nametop.location.host);
    }
    </script>

    To get host name in JavaScript add
    Code:
    var hostname = window.location.hostname
    this statement in your code.

    However if you want you can use "VIH_HostName" variable. The client host name is stored in this variable.

    Re: How to get the hostname using JavaScript

    Here is a simple example how to get the hostname of your web site. Basically the hostname property of Location class represents the hostname portion of the URL.

    HTML Code:
    <html>
        <head>
        <title> Using the hostname property of the Location object</title>
        </head>
        <body>
        <script language="JavaScript">
        <!--
        function show(){
             alert(document.location.hostname);
        }
        -->
        </script>
        <form name="form1">
        Click the button to get the current location.hostname
        <br>
        http://www.java2s.com
        <br>
        <input type="button" name="gethost" value="Get hostname" onClick='show()'>
        <br>
        </form>
        </body>
        </html>
