    Code snippets:URI parsing

    When dealing with the facilities of nsIURI, the task of parsing a URI can still require additional work.

    It's advised that you use the nsIEffectiveTLDService.

    Grabbing the main domain using the EffectiveTLDService

    Even using the ETLDService, you're unable to get just the base domain sans TLD. So, here's some sample code to determine the base domain without any suffixes:

    var eTLDService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/effective-tld-service;1"].
                      getService(Components.interfaces.nsIEffectiveTLDService);
    var suffix = eTLDService.getPublicSuffix(aURI);
    var basedomain = eTLDService.getBaseDomain(aURI); // this includes the TLD
    basedomain = basedomain.substr(0, (basedomain.length - suffix.length - 1)); // - 1 to remove the period before the tld
