One way, ghItlh is also the noun "manuscript".
ghItlhvam vIghItlh.

Or, in a recent HolQeD Qanqor wrote an interesting artical where he
suggested the use of 'oHvam.  (Sep 2000)

Nope.  tlhIngan Hol

It is placed correctly, but I don't think it needs to be there.

-Daq is supposed to be a "real" location.  Many here have used it for ciber
locations, just as we do with english.  I haven't seen any complaints about
using it in reference to the internet.
