Rusty Locks Notes 2023

#TIL |  Jane Doe of Domains

In concepts, manuals, prototypes and the like, it happens again and again that one uses for illustration web domains like domain.com or similar. However, this can only be done safely with the following 4 domains registered and blocked by IANA since 1992:

  • example.com
  • example.net
  • example.org
  • example.edu

The German beispiel.de is not one of them, even if its owner provides it for this purpose.
