Aye... but what should you use ?
AFAIK the only reserved domains are .example.org, .example.com, .example.net,
.example, .localhost, .invalid, and .test
Which are all reserved for things like documentation, testing, etc...
The general suggestion is to make a subdomain of your real domain
which is only accessable from inside, like internal.mydomain.com
which isn't the bestest idea ever... (I don't need a real domain at home).
I've used the likes of .local and .internal in the past (and .internal.nw
when I came across some stoopid software that insisted it needed at least
two dots in its domain name!!).
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
