New News: More Domain Extensions (TLDs)

by SW Team

A few weeks ago, you saw that we have implemented improvements in Layer 7 FireWall Security, with better IP filtering and pre-detection of attacks. Besides, during the month of June there will be a lot of improvements of our services. However, today we have another very important news to announce, which you will surely like: We have added new Domain Extensions (TLDs), and during this month we will be adding more.

Before we tell you which ones they are, and what kind of website they would be useful for, we will briefly explain the differences between Hosting and Domain, as well as what is a TLD.  If you want another blog that deals in more depth with the differences between Hosting and Domain, write it in the comments of the social media.

A domain is the unique name assigned to a website address, e.g. "", which acts as a unique label that easily identifies and locates a page on the Internet. Keep in mind, that it is important to choose an appropriate and remarkable domain name, as it can influence the visibility and recognition of the website.

Moreover, TLDs (Top Level Domains) are the top level domain extensions found at the end of a web address. These extensions have different functions and are used to classify websites according to their purpose, location or category. Some of the most common TLDs are .com, .org, .net, .edu, .gov, among others.

On the other hand, Hosting allows a website to be stored and shown on the Internet. It functions as a virtual space where all files, images and data related to the website are stored, making it available online for visitors. The hosting provider, such as SW Hosting, provides servers with powerful computers connected to high-speed Internet and technical resources so that the website is accessible 24 hours of the day.

In other words, while the domain is used to identify a website on the internet, the hosting is responsible for storing the content of that website to make it available online.

What domain extensions have we added?

Here are the extensions that we have added, which you can also see on our website:

  • .bio: is used to highlight biographies or personal profiles online. It focuses on displaying personal or professional information about individuals who are distinguished in certain fields.
  • .cloud: is used to indicate that a website is related to cloud services and applications, and online services. It is a popular choice to highlight companies and professionals offering cloud-based solutions.

What other domain extensions will we add? [Update 07/06/2023: We already have these extensions]

  • .foo: one of the favourites of software developers, as "foo" is used as a placeholder in the source code.
  • .zip: This extension can associate your website with speed and efficiency, as "ZIP" refers to the compression of files to reduce their size and facilitate transfer.
