URLUtilsReadOnly.origin

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

The URLUtilsReadOnly.origin read-only property is a DOMString containing the Unicode serialization of the origin of the represented URL, that is, for http and https, the scheme followed by '://', followed by the domain, followed by ':', followed by the port (the default port, 80 and 443 respectively, if explicitely specified). For URL using file: scheme, the value is browser dependant.

This version of origin is implemented by WorkerLocation for use on workers.

Syntax

string = object.origin;

Examples

// On this page, returns the origin
var result = self.location.origin; // Returns:'https://developer.mozilla.org:443'
