    NSURL baseURL returns nil. Any other way to get the actual base URL /Link

    I think I don't understand the concept of "baseURL". This:

    NSLog(@"BASE URL: %@ %@", [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.google.es"], [[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.google.es"] baseURL]);

    Prints this:

    BASE URL: http://www.google.es (null)

    And of course, in the Apple docs I read this:

    Return Value The base URL of the receiver. If the receiver is an absolute URL, returns nil.

    I'd like to get from this example URL:


    This base URL


    My question is simple. Is there any cleaner way of getting the actual base URL without concatenating the scheme and the hostname? I mean, what's the purpose of base URL then?
