    Hello everyone!

    I recently purchased a .online domain name, and everything is fine with it, except when I try to access the site via my iPhone, I enter the URL (the domain name), and instead of going to the site, the phone conducts a search of the name in Google.
    Does anyone know the reason for this?

    I would request you to share the domain name to check the issue out.

    The domain name in question is intermed.online.
    There is no site hosted at the moment but still you can see that Safari wont take you to the site, doing the search instead.

    Most probably resolved but for all the new readers: it might be necessary to put http : / / before a nTLD domain name. This is because the browsers sometimes are not updated jet to recognize "website.something" the same way they know "website.com" or "website.pl" . For most established TLDs like .com, .fr etc. the browser knows the thing you type is an URL. If you type website.online the browser might not recognize this as URL and instead searches this with Google. So you need to type a comoplete URL instead like "http://mobiletools.online"
