1. Different domain extensions

URLs are ended with different extensions, such as .com, .edu, .net or .org. So if you need to type the domain extention, you can hold the .com button at the bottom of the keyboard, then you can get options of .edu, .net and .org. And if you are going to a domain with the extension of .com, you can ditch the URL extensions: taking www.iskysoft.com for example, you can directly enter iskysoft into the search bar.
