thanks for the informations, I never had issue with localhost for what I 
remember, anyway I changed it

I also retried the domain raise command but nothing changed

if I remember good many years ago microsoft advised to use ".local" for 
domains without an "real webdomain" assigned (for use on LAN), only 
years later i saw that microsoft changed idea and instead said the 
opposite, anyway ".local" was still used and also recommended by someone 
in some cases. so I hadn't given it weight, now instead I did a search 
after your email I see that in fact many say that ".local" should not be 
used and it is absurd that someone still recommends it.

changing existing domains I think is problematic, or I'm wrong? ".local" 
I also saw it still seems to be used even in recent domains :(

is there any problem having it relating to domain functions itself?

for new domains what should be done when there isn't "webdomain" 
(registered domain) assigned?

thanks for any reply and sorry for my bad english
