Am I supposed to change site name for DNS Multitenant?

I am following the instructions here:

When I get to the end of the instructions, I am clearly able to add additional sites, but am I supposed to also change the original “site1.local” site name to a domain name?

For the DNS Multitenant, when the instructions references “hostname” does that mean the sitename in the /sites directory?

Are those names supposed to be something like “” or “” or is there some other naming convention? The instructions do not talk about that part of the operation.
