Currently, the enterprise operates in a single domain. Development and Testing occur in the same domain. Does it make sense to create a separate domain for development and testing that mimics the production domain?

  • @joeqwerty, I'm referring to a network domain. domain: A collection of computers or other networked resources.

Yes, it makes sense and is a common practice I have encountered in multiple organizations.

It helps in separation of production and development environments in particular when infrastructure as code is implemented. Further you need a dedicated domain name for development when you want to be able to test the configuration of proxy servers.


Yes your can accomplish this configuration in dns server by creating various sub domain as per your company requirement this is on-going general practice on most of companies as I experienced.
