Repl has a new domain?
LoveFromSkyy

I was working on a project and I came across repl again so I can script it. I noticed a change in the domain name while programming.

Apparently, repl has changed the domain to replit.com instead of plain repl.it.
I know the person who made this change is likely not going to notice this post, but it would be nice to know why this change was made (Hopefully a mod will be able to tell me why).

One of the reasons that I am asking this is because I want to know the difference/change on repl.

Long story short, the .com domain is easier for the team to handle than the .it domain. And also because they want everyone to call them as 'REPLIT' as they start to become more popular (with almost 7 million users).

Thanks, I understand now. I'll do some more research in order to perfect my future websites ^-^ @OldWizard209
