I currently have a few cloud instances and each of them has it's own URL (such as example.com) that is pointed at it through my registrar.
However, I am curious what, if any changes I should make to their
hostname (using the
hostname) command to configure them properly.
Just for fun, I have given them totally random names, through either the
hostname command or by editing
The thing is, I just don't know what this is used for?
Can anyone clarify how the
hostname set on the server relates to the URL / domain name I am pointing at it (if it does at all)
and for what, exactly, the hostname of a server is used?
