    nope you cannot

    Yaar, although some hosts do get shitty about it and will reject if they think you don't own the domain. Basically don't shove in there and you'll probably be ok.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • I usually use [email protected]{alphanumerical string}.com. Something obscure that would never be registered normally.

    Thanks cleared that up for me

    If possible, I normally just name it something like testvps or debian without a .com or .net, but that's when the host allows you to name it without a web extension.
