I've found this page where user asks how to open .clos and .loky domains. I assume these aren't the valid domain suffixes.

However to avoid confusion, my question is, which the hidden top-level domains suffixes are exactly supported by Tor browser (ignoring surface web one) other than .onion?

.tor

.tor is a pseudo-top-level domain host suffix implemented by the OnioNS project, which aims to add DNS infrastructure to the Tor network enabling the selection of meaningful and globally-unique domain name for hidden services, which users can then reference from the Tor Browser.

.exit

.exit is a pseudo-top-level domain used by Tor users to indicate on the fly to the Tor software the preferred exit node that should be used while connecting to a service such as a web server, without having to edit the configuration file for Tor (torrc).

First, dot-tor are not supported by Tor itself - it's a side product, don't mess things up! dot-exit is a Tor's feature to map exits, and dot-onion is the only top-level suffix to address a Tor darknet hidden services

    "Don't mess things up!"? This is a question-and-answer site, check the attitude at the door. – T.J.L. May 31 '16 at 15:49
  • @T.J.L. I mean that speaking of something supposed to be related to Tor must not include the things that are designed to deceive the fact of it's relation to Tor. It's defenately not a bad language - it's a warning not to buy on theese "tor extensions" designed to wiretap. I've mentioned the only things "supported by" and "directly related to" Tor, and not to say "RTFM, dude" or anything like that. I used to help a person on Tor.SE - and via TeamViewer I saw a fake TBB bundle with a side binary instead of tor.exe - it's even mimic'ed it's output and reported errors in torrc – Alexey Vesnin May 31 '16 at 16:32

    That is all useful information that could be part of an answer. Instead, what you've written reads as rather elitist - I didn't say anything about bad language, I was objecting to the attitude and tone of the statement. – T.J.L. May 31 '16 at 17:00
  • @T.J.L. It is a loud warning, like one we all need at out early childhood when we're about to play with a power outlet : it is dangerous. – Alexey Vesnin May 31 '16 at 17:12
