You can query your current Salesforce.com instance from Apex code:

String instance = System.URL.getSalesforceBaseUrl().getHost();

enter image description here

This will give you complete host name, you will need to break it using any string method to get the exact instance name.

VF Page

<apex:page docType="html-5.0" controller="myController"  >
  <apex:form id="form1">
      <br />
      <apex:outputText id="urlString" value="{!url}"></apex:outputText>


public class myController {
    public string url{
        get {
            if (this.url == null)
                this.url = System.URL.getSalesforceBaseUrl().getHost();
            return this.url; }

  • Instance will remain the same in the org, regardless of the owner of any record whatsoever. May be, it will be clearer for us and be able to help you better if you share your requirements in detail here.

  • Do you have controller in you VF page? if yes, create a property and set it with the instance name you are looking for, then 'get' that property in your VF page.
