Get absolute url?

I need to produce an absolute URL to a blog post. I can get the path, but am not sure the best way to get the host. Is there something Orchard-specific, or should I just use standard ASP.NET methods with Request.?

I ask if there's something Orchard-specific because I want to use the canonical path to an item. Specifically, if the user is on www, I want that removed.

Thanks

There is a base URL setting that you could use but anything that works in ASP.NET should also work here.
