  1. Hi guys,

    This may seem fairly petty but I'd like to ensure my new dedicated box is perfect :p.

    Basically, in a few days I'll be ordering a new dedicated box from ReliableSite from thier NYC Metro location however I'm not overly sure the most appropriate hostname for the server;

    nyc.dwilson.me.uk
    new-york.dwilson.me.uk
    new-jersey.dwilson.me.uk
    piscataway.dwilson.me.uk
    usa.dwilson.me.uk

    The NYC Metro location is in Piscataway, NJ which is in the New York Metropolitan Area (I believe). I'm only working with one server at this time so I won't have anything like 'nyc-1', 'nyc-2' etc.

    What is the most appropiate hostname for this server?

    Thanks.
     
  2. Short and simple.

  3. I had thought that, my only issue is the server isn't really in New York City as the name would suggest but rather in New Jersey. That's what made me reconsider.
     
  4. Close enough?... you could maybe name it nj.host.name? but I'd personally stick to nyc.
     
  5. Yeah, maybe even pnj.dwilson.me.uk, the abbreviation given by ReliableSite.

    Possibly useast.hostname.com?
