 (In [6480]) Increase the maxlength attribute on the site registration
 template from 50 to 63.

 * 63 characters is the maximum length of domains per ​RFC1034.
 * While not universally enforced, some systems such as some DNS servers do
 follow the RFC.
 * Server-side validation has been intentionally omitted as this should be
 handled upstream in WordPress; see #WP21994

 Fixes #4560, props humanshell
