6 That's generally a good idea. After using .local for many years,
7 too, I have switched to my "official" domain and added "local"
8 for the internal IP addresses.
10 So my server down in the basement is something like ""
11 where BIND delivers the IP address 93.some.thing.official, and a DNS
12 request for "" delivers 10.some.thing.internal.
14 So there's no need any more to search for some TLD which won't interfere
15 with anything :-)
