Is there a convention for naming a local server. I am preparing to set up a dell poweredge 4400 on windows 2003 server and i'm trying to decide what to name it. For example, if our company web site is www.arkengineering.net
, then our remote domain name is arkengineering.net. Should i call the local server ark.local or arkengineering.local.
If I expect to host the company web site on this server at some point in the distant future, will I have to change the name? Any other original suggestions or innovative ideas would be appreciated.
