states:

"During the Debian installation you are asked to supply a domain
name. This is an internal (private) domain name which is not visible
to the outside world so, like the private IP address ranges you use on
a LAN, it doesn't have to be registered with anyone."

It would be REALLY helpful if this were mentioned during the installation.
