Stay vigilant when encountering relatively fresh top-level domains such as .click and .loan

The internet has evolved beyond the typical .com, .org, and .gov domains, introducing a plethora of new ones in the mid-2010s. While some, like .blog and .fitness, are embraced by reputable sources, others like .click and .loan are notorious scam hotspots. Keep a keen eye on your URL bar – typing something like “cheap.loan” might just land you on a perilous site rather than executing a harmless web search.
