FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is URL to DOMAIN?
URLtoDOMAIN.com is a free and professional tool that extracts domains and subdomains from all kinds of URLs (also called 'Internet web addresses').
For whom is this tool designed?
For webmasters, online business owners, SEO (search engine optimization) professionals, web development service providers, and Internet marketers. It may be especially handy to site owners affected by a 'negative SEO attack' who use the disavow tool offered by Google and Bing. The disavow tool allows webmasters to upload a .txt file containing a list of malicious / unwanted URLs or domains that link to the affected website in order to neutralize their negative effects.
What kind of TLD and gTLD names does the tool use?
URLtoDOMAIN uses all ICANN domains and private domains. The database of names is regularly updated to make sure all TLD/gTLD names are valid and properly executed by the script.
What character encoding does the tool use?
All output data is encoded in UTF-8 format.
Is there a limit on the number of URLs I can submit?
As long as you don't try to paste a million of URLs at one time, it should work without limits :) In general, we strongly suggest not to include more than 50K of entries at a time to avoid service interruption. If, after submitting the form, you don't see the results in a yellow-background textarea it means you tried to extract too many URLs at the same time.
Can I save the results to a plain text (.txt) or CSV file?
You surely can! The links to Open / Save the list of extracted domains in a .txt or CSV format will appear on the Results page as soon as the extracting process is completed.
