[SOLVED] Domain name

Postby sjsj » 2017-12-16 16:57

Hello,

Sorry, I speak a little English.

My questions:

  1. If my network is only home, what choose this domain name?
  2. If I end the install, how to setting up this domain name?

Please help me. Thanks!

You do not need to give a domain name.
"Something to be aware of: Debian is a core or source distribution. This means there are many Debian-based distributions. THEY ARE NOT DEBIAN." - oswaldkelso

You can use any name you want, or leave it blank, I generally use my name,
Like it says, "
Code: Select all
If you are not sure, just make one up, but it is a good idea to use the same name on all your computers
"
You can copy / paste the above into a translator, and translate to your language.
You can also change the domain name later, or add it, later. By editing the
/etc/hostname file, (I think it is, to be honest don't rememebr exactly)
but
Code: Select all
man hostname
goes into it.
