$website = '';
$data = 'http://google.com'; // change website url like $data = 'www.google.com';
function get_string_between_data($string, $start, $end){
	$string = ' ' . $string;
	$ini = strpos($string, $start);
	if ($ini == 0) return '';
	$ini += strlen($start);
	$len = strpos($string, $end, $ini) - $ini;
	$string_find  = substr($string, $ini, $len);
	$finalstring = str_replace(" ", "", $string_find);
	return $finalstring = str_replace($string_find, $finalstring, $string);
}

$websitedata = get_string_between_data($data, 'www.', '.');

if(empty($website) && !empty($websitedata))
{
	$website_re = '/(https?:\/\/(?:www\.|(?!www))[^\s\.]+\.[^\s]{2,}|www\.[^\s]+\.[^\s]{2,})/';
	preg_match_all($website_re, $websitedata, $websitematches);
	$website = $websitematches[0][0];

	if(empty($website) && !empty($websitedata))
	{
		$website_re = '/(https?:\/\/(?:www\.|(?!www))[^\s\.]+\.[^\s]{2,}|WWW\.[^\s]+\.[^\s]{2,})/';
		preg_match_all($website_re, $websitedata, $websitematches);
		$website = $websitematches[0][0];
	}
}
else
{
	$website_re = '/(https?:\/\/(?:www\.|(?!www))[^\s\.]+\.[^\s]{2,}|www\.[^\s]+\.[^\s]{2,})/';
	preg_match_all($website_re, $data, $websitematches);
	$website = @$websitematches[0][0];

	if(empty($website))
	{
		$website_re = '/(https?:\/\/(?:www\.|(?!www))[^\s\.]+\.[^\s]{2,}|WWW\.[^\s]+\.[^\s]{2,})/';
		preg_match_all($website_re, $data, $websitematches);
		$website = @$websitematches[0][0];
	}
