Applescript terminal extension issue

I'm running MacOS Sierra 10.12.2 and trying to create a script (using applescript) for flushing my dns (sudo dscacheutil -flushcache;sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder;say flushed) but I can't save it with a .sh extension which is the necessary ext to open terminal. It's forcing me to save as .scpt (or another ext based on file type, but none of the options have .sh as an option). Please help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can accomplish the same thing in a simple bash file written through any text editor (like TextEdit or TextWrangler). It should look something like (# signs indicate commented lines, and #!/bin/bash must be the first line of the file):

Save as a .sh such as flushCache.sh. From terminal cd to the saved file's directory, then run sh ./flushCache.sh
