Ok, Im new here and this question has been bugging me for some time now. I have tried googling for any results at all on the subject but have come up short.

Question: Is there any way to purchase or obtain a domain extension, similar to .com, .net, .org, etc.? I have been thinking about making my own extension and was wondering the process in which to do so. Thanks for the help in advance.

Having your own extension outside of the known and approved extensions will make it extremely hard for anyone to find your site. Especially the Search Engines. Possibly you can run your own extensions on your own server, but why? If no one can find you, no will will visit.

Ya that makes sense, I as kind of just interested in the idea or possibility of creating one of my own. Which could be a benefit if I dont want the site to be easily public, but have a little bit of secrecy.

Then set up your own on your computer and restrict access to only those you want.
