When I download a file from a site whose domain ends in, the download manager lists it as being downloaded from, not the actual site. This is probably because of the manager's subdomain handling, which causes the actual domain (in this case, the-pizzaboy192), to be recognized as a subdomain of the domain I imagine that simply adding to the list of domain suffixes, this problem would be resolved. Even better, an editable list of domain suffixes would allow anyone to add any domain suffix.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit a website
2. Download any file
3. View the download manager
Actual Results:  
I saw only as the site that was downloaded from

Expected Results:  
The software should have shown as the site downloaded from

It just uses the eTLD service to figure this stuff out.

We only have a "cc" entry in our etld file. From

Note: "" is not an official hierarchy; it is a domain ( owned by a company who offers free subdomain redirection services.

So, not really sure what we want to do here. In the interest of the web working better, we should probably add it. Gerv, thoughts?

I'd note that the site '' sets domain cookies for '' (standard Google Analytics cookies). As it stands, that's not all that great for sites underneath it.
We do add pseudo-TLDs like, but only if the domain owner of applies and requests it. Until then, it's a WONTFIX.
