Hello @kartik,

Use:

var host = window.location.hostname;

or possibly

var host = "http://"+window.location.hostname;

or if you like concatenation

var protocol = location.protocol;
var slashes = protocol.concat("//");
var host = slashes.concat(window.location.hostname);

Hope it helps!!

Thank You!!
