Be wary of relatively new top-level domains like .click and .loan

Not all websites end in the familiar .com, .org and .gov top-level domains. Many new ones were introduced in the mid-2010s. Some of these, including .blog and .fitness, are widely used by reputable outlets, while others like .click and .loan are havens for scams. Watch what you type in your URL bar, as something like “cheap.loan” could send you to a risky site instead of performing a generic web search.
