The DOM Area origin Property in HTML is used to return the protocol, hostname and port number of a URL. This is a read-only property. 



Return Value: This method returns a String value representing the protocol, the domain name (or IP address) and port number. The URL’s having the ‘file://’ protocol may return different values depending on the browser. 

Example: This example returns the Area origin Property. 


<!DOCTYPE html>
    HTML DOM Area origin Property
    <h4> HTML DOM Area origin Property </h4>
    <button onclick="GFG()">Click Here!
    <map name="Geeks1">
        <area id="Geeks"
            coords="0, 0, 110, 100"
    <img src=
    <p id="GEEK!"></p>
        function GFG() {
        // Return origin property.
            var x = document.getElementById("Geeks").origin;
        document.getElementById("GEEK!").innerHTML = x;
