Use example.net as domain in default configuration (#1762).

History

#1 Updated by Dave Abdemoulaie over 9 years ago

example.com, .net, and .org are not reserved domain names. RFC 2606 clearly states the following are reserved:

  • .test
  • .example
  • .invalid
  • .localhost

Regardless, this request is pedantic, a non-issue, and a waste of time imo.

Thanks for your comment to my opinion.

RFC 2606 chapter 3 saids that these domains are also reserved.

I don't think so. Popular product would better to be educational.
