Which of this two ways is better in performance? Or is there any better way?

If no special characters are present, the first method will scan the whole string four times, while the second will only scan it once. Performance-wise, that's the only difference worth noticing, so you might as well go with the second method. But you're probably wasting your effort. Remember the three rules of optimization:

1. Don't do it.
2. Don't do it.
3. Before you do it, complete the app and profile it; the bottlenecks probably aren't where you expect them to be.
