Change the default TLD when creating new sites

As Google is about to introduce strict requirements for dev and foo TLDs, many developers will need to either always deal with certificates, install a local CA or use a different TLD.

It would be nice if we could customize the default TLD used by Local when creating new sites.

You beat me to it.

Google bought .dev a long time ago so this was a long time coming, but the HSTS issue brings it forward.

I’ve already requested this feature for the same reason :smile:

While it was simple enough to change the TLD in Local, I agree the default needs to change.

I would suggest .local :wink:

Probably, .local is not the best choice as it has a very specific purpose since is “a pseudo-top-level domain for hostnames in local area networks that can be resolved via the Multicast DNS name resolution protocol”: in some (maybe rare) cases, it may lead to issues.

.test seems more appropriate, as it’s a reserved TLD “not intended to be installed as a top-level domain (TLD) in the global Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet for production use”: it seems perfect for the purpose of the local development.
