# 'google.co.uk'

print get_tld("http://www.google.idontexist", fail_silently=True)
# None

If you wish, you could get the result as an object:

from tld import get_tld
res = get_tld("http://some.subdomain.google.co.uk", as_object=True)
print res
# 'google.co.uk'

print res.subdomain
# 'some.subdomain'

print res.domain
# 'google'

print res.suffix
# 'co.uk'

print res.tld
# 'google.co.uk'
