how do you move keys from one keyboard to another?

In typing a web address ending in a number, the @ and .com keys moved to the numeric keypad on their own, disappearing from the alpha keypad.  How does this happen and how do I get them back?

The .com key has now disappeared from even the numeric keypad?

Why not have these present and fixed on all keypads?

I believe the keyboard picks up attributes from the app or browser concerned.  If the field is attributed as email address the @ will be in the main layout. If its a password field, you get all the numbers tio. Depends on the way the web page was coded, but you can't control it.
