Hi! On my Kindle Fire HD (2013) I've just tried to open my nice new website in Silk to show my wife, and it can't get to it... instead it opens a Google window searching for the two words in my domain name...

The domain in question is one of the new gTLD domains and is a .technology one (

It works fine on my PC using Firefox, IE, Chrome or Opera, but Silk appears to only see it as a search request...

Any ideas how to fix this, or is this something that the authors of Silk will need to rectify with an update?

Perhaps address the same question to Amazon who no doubt will be able to refer it to their technical bods who will be able to give you a real reply?

Have you tried typing http:// followed by the domain name?

I can reach it by adding http:// before the web address. Says the site is 'under construction'.

Yes, it works if I manually add in the http:// but it should automatically add that in the same way as it does for anything else... I should just be able to type "" and it should still go straight to my website as IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari do...
