I've wondered this for ages. When you set up networking as part of 
installing FreeBSD one of the pieces of information requested is a 
domain name. Also setting up dhcp.conf one of the fields is domain name. 
What do you do if you don't have your own domain?

I've never supplied a domain name when installing FreeBSD and it doesn't 
seem to have been a problem. I'm just setting up dhcp for the first time 
and I don't know if it matters here.
