TLDs for TLC

Thanks to "Jon", who pointed out that the Top Level Domain (TLD) is reserved for those times when you need a bogus domain for testing or documentation. Go ahead, click it!

Even better, under RFC 2606 four TLDs are reserved for your testing and documentation pleasure. To quote the RFC:

.testtesting of current or new DNS related code
.exampledocumentation or examples
.invalidonline construction of domain names that are sure
to be invalid and which it is obvious at a glance are invalid
.localhostloop back
