The complete list of top-level domains is neither very long, nor
changes very often. Perhaps a new country/suffix now and again is added or
renamed, but it doesn't happen that much.

In short, I think it'd be much better for you to obtain a full list
and then just remove that element from your hostname. Then you'll know
for a fact that whatever is left is the pure domain (+ sub-domain).

Of course it won't help if someone gives you the IP of a site (or any
other similar variation) instead of a domain name :)
