Shortcut to .com websites not as prominent in latest operating system.
The only device my daughter has used to visit a website is the iPad. So when I let her use my laptop one day, she looked at the keyboard with a puzzled look.
“Where’s the dot com key, daddy?” she asked.
A lot of people are now asking that same question as Apple has ditched the button in the new iOS7 operating system update. That’s a pretty big deal for the domain name industry.
.Com is still there, but it’s hidden. And it’s one of five top level domain choices available on the keyboard.
If you press and hold the . button, here’s what happens:
As you can see, .com is still the first option. But .net, .edu, .org, and .us also make an appearance. As of now, none of the newer TLDs are on there, even though some have more registrations .edu. (I also assume the ccTLD shows up based on your country.)
Will this button someday also show .apple?
