    Is it possible to change the .com button in the keyboard to something else e.g. .dk?

    It would be nice because i visit more .dk (danish) sites than .com. My iPad 2 is already set to danish in the settings under international. Is it at all possible?

    If you press and hold the .com button it should give you alternatives to select from, I get .uk and .co.uk and a few others, I assume it's related to your international settings, so hopefully you will also get them tailored to you.

    What it shows you is based on Settings - General - International - Region Format

    You should copy this tip to the Hints & Tips thread - I'd have never thought you could change this - it'll come in useful :D

    Thanks DefBref

    The button is still .com, but I do get some options by pressing it down - including .dk. It's better than nothing I suppose though I'd still like to have the .dk-button in itself.

    .com is still the dominant domain tld, so it still makes sense to leave it as the default if you are not going to allow configured defaults.
