Node.js URL.port API

  • Last Updated : 14 Oct, 2021

The url.port is an inbuilt application programming interface of class URL within url module which is used to get and set the port portion of the URL.the port value may be a number or a string containing a number in the range 0 to 65535 (inclusive). Setting the value to the default port of the URL objects given protocol will result in the port value becoming the empty string (”). 
The port value can be an empty string in which case the port depends on the protocol/scheme:

Protocolport
“ftp”21
“file” 
“gopher”70
“http”80
“https”443
“ws”80
“wss”443

Upon assigning a value to the port, the value will first be converted to a string using .toString()
If that string is invalid but it begins with a number, the leading number is assigned to the port. If the number lies outside the range denoted above, it is ignored.

Syntax:  

const url.port

Return value: It gets and sets the port portion of the URL.

Below programs illustrate the use of url.port Method:



Example 1:  

Javascript




// node program to demonstrate the 
// url.port API as Setter 
   
//importing the module 'url'
const http = require('url');
   
// creating and initializing myURL
const myURL = new URL('https://example.com:80/foo#ram');
   
// Display href and port
// value of myURL before change
console.log("Before Change");
console.log(myURL.href);
   
// assigning port portion
// using port API
console.log();
myURL.port = '12345';
   
// Display href and password
// value of myURL after change
console.log("After Change");
console.log(myURL.href);

Output

Example 2: If the port number is half numeric and half alphabetic  

Javascript




// node program to demonstrate the 
// url.port API as Setter 
    
//importing the module 'url'
const http = require('url');
    
// creating and initializing myURL
const myURL = new URL('https://example.com:80/foo#ram');
    
// Display href and port
// value of myURL before change
console.log("Before Change");
console.log(myURL.href);
    
// assigning port portion
// using port API
console.log();
myURL.port = '2580abcd';
    
// Display href and password
// value of myURL after change
console.log("After Change");
console.log(myURL.href);

Output

Example 3:  

Javascript




// node program to demonstrate the 
// url.port API as Getter 
  
//importing the module 'url'
const http = require('url');
  
// creating and initializing myURL
const myURL = new URL('https://example.org/foo#ram');
myURL.port = '1234'
  
// getting the port portion
// using port
const port = myURL.port;
  
// Display port value 
console.log("port is : " + port);
  
//"https" default port is 443
console.log("After Change");
myURL.port = '443';
console.log(myURL.port);

Output: 

NOTE: The above program will compile and run by using the myapp.js command on Node.
