How to get the current URL with javascript

We can get the current URL using the window.location.href.

See the example code below.

let currentUrl = window.location.href;
console.log(currentUrl);

The window.location object can get us some more URL properties.

  • window.location.href - to get the URL of the current page
  • window.location.hostname - to get the domain name of the web host
  • window.location.pathname - to get the path and filename of the current page
  • window.location.protocol - to get the web protocol of the current page (HTTP: or HTTPS:)
