getting some part of URL

I'm trying to get the end part of this URL (in the sever side):

http://localhost:3000/insAds/D79htZY8DQ3YmcscE

I mean I want to get this string:

D79htZY8DQ3YmcscE

there is a similar question: How to get the query parameters in Iron-router?

but non of the answers can't help me! because I have no query params in the URL.

I know these codes gives me the string that I want:

this.params.id

and

Router.current().params.id

but these codes works only in client side! I want to get that string in the server side!

finally I'm trying to get that string and use here:

Ads.before.insert(function(userId, doc) {
    //console.log(this.params.id);
    doc._categoryId = this.params.id;
    doc.createdAt = new Date();
    doc.createdBy = Meteor.userId();
});

You can use Router.current().params or this.params like this

Router.route('/insAds/:id', function () {
    console.log(this.params.id); // this should log D79htZY8DQ3YmcscE in console
});

Check the third example in Quick Start section of iron router documentation

EDIT: Based on our chat,

Your hook is

Ads.before.insert(function(userId, doc) {
    //console.log(this.params.id);
    doc._categoryId = this.params.id;
    doc.createdAt = new Date();
    doc.createdBy = Meteor.userId();
});

Change it to

Ads.before.insert(function(userId, doc) {
    doc.createdAt = new Date();
    doc.createdBy = Meteor.userId();
});

And then define meteor method in server like this

Meteor.methods({
    'myInsertMethod': function (id) {
         Ads.insert({
             _categoryId: id
         });
    }
});

Call this from client side like this

Meteor.call('myInsertMethod', Router.params().id, function (err, res) { 
    console.log (err, res);
});
