The url.hostname is an inbuilt application programming interface of class URL within the url module which is used to get and set the hostname portion of the URL. The url.hostname does not include the port number.

// url.hostname API as both Getter and Setter  
      
// Imports only single export 'URl'
// from url module using ES6 syntax
const { URL } = require('url');  
      
// Creating and initializing myURL
// object using URL constructor
const myURL = new URL('https://gfg.org:80/foo#ram'); 
      
// Display hostname value of myURL before change 
console.log("Before Change"); 
console.log(myURL.hostname); 
   
console.log('');
   
// Updating hostname portion 
// using hostname method
myURL.hostname = 'example2.com'
      
// Display hostname value of myURL after updating 
console.log("After Change"); 
console.log(myURL.hostname);
