Micro domains and domain hack

Hi

What is you go to platform/site for searching for Micro domains and domain hack?

I'm looking for something just for "internal use" and nothing fancy... Just a short domain/hack to allocate names to servers and to use in develop/tests.

Thanks

  • You can use any domain you like, just add that do you hosts file or use at your own router DNS.

  • What are "Micro domains"?

    If I understand well what he expects, he wants the shortest local domain possible, so instead of ".local" or ".localdomain", he can just set ".a".

    if "internal use" == local network

  • I've used https://domai.nr/ for this in the past.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

  • Hi

    Micro/short domains. This domain will be used to give names to servers, develop and testing and it must/can be any public TLD - internal was not the best word.

  • Unfortunately my source for these is long gone, but you can see what it looked like here:

    Well, the short ones are expensive and are mostly taken.

    For development/test, I believe there are cheaper options like .cyou, .sbs, .xyz, .cfd etc.

  • I run Pi-Hole at home and with the local DNS built into Pi-Hole I use *.svp for all my local machines, and *.ts for servers connected through tailscale.

  • Well, the quickest solution is to modify your hosts file and direct anything to anything... if you want a quick hack that would work with any domain (short or long).

  • If its only for testing, www.freenom.com have a bunch of free TLD's (.tk/.ml/.ga/.cf/.gq).
    I would not run any production on them, but they work great for testing, I have a few of my own.
