'jason' isn't illegal, it is the context that you were asking about, 
'jason.com' is a registered dns domain, so you shouldn't use it as your 
base dns domain. You shouldn't use any registered dns domain directly as 
an AD dns domain, you should use a subdomain of this, from your example 
above, it could be something like 'jason.mynetworkdomain.ccc'. There is 
probably an existing dns server for the 'mynetworkdomain.ccc' and the DC 
must be authoritative for its dns domain and it cannot be if there is an 
existing dns server.
