I am in the process of setting up my first active directory domain for a small business. The business already owns the (internet) domain name company.com. On the 2nd our O365 mail account has been setup with @company.com. But we have no plan to integrate/replicate our on-premises domain with cloud domain. I am receiving conflicting advice on how to name the active directory domain. I am willing to name our AD domain as “company.com” – But which options is better to be in the long run:
company.local / company.internal
I have been reading multiple forums, however it doesn’t seem to offer any good advice on the subject. Is there anyone in the know here who can advise the advantages/disadvantages of the different choices?
