Using this mixed Mid and Search function, you can quickly get the domain names from the list, please do as this:

1. In a blank cell C1, enter this formula =MID(A1,SEARCH("@",A1)+1,255), see screenshot:


Note: In the above formula, 255 is just a large number to make sure you get the whole domain.

2. Press Enter key and select cell C1, then drag the fill handle over to the range that you want to contain this formula. And the domains have been extracted from the cells, see screenshot:


Except the formula, you can also get the domains from cells with Text to Columns feature in Excel.

1. Select the range that you want to extract the domains.

2. Click Data > Text to Columns, see screenshot:


3. In the Convert Text to Columns Wizard, check Delimited option in Step 1.


4. And click Next button, in Step 2, check Other option under Delimiters, and in the Other text box, enter the character @. See screenshot:


5. Go on Next, and in Step 3, check General from Columndata format.


6. At last, click Finish button, and the domains have been split from the cells, see screenshot:


Note: With this method, the original data will be destroyed, you'd better back up a copy of the data at first.
