Thank you for the information.

Do you know what the .tld stand for at the end?

That is what makes me so confused

Emilive,

That email address should be a working email address!
Do not just use "postmaster@yourdomain.tld" as this is only shown as example.

The .tld is an abbreviation for top-level domain.
