Now that you have your own servers you need to name them like any good admin would. Giving each server a name will help you and your clients communicate more effectively.

Now that you have your own servers you need to name them like any good admin would. Giving each server a name will help you and your clients communicate more effectively. If a client phones you up and says they’re on server 25 will you know which one that is? Instead of just using plain numbers have a bit of fun with it and try to keep the same category or theme type for your servers.

Server Name Suggestions
- Try to keep the names short so you can spell and remember them
- Don’t use any numbers with your server names
- Have some fun and be creative!

Here are a few suggestions!
- Animal names: eg hawk
- Planets eg: uranus, well maybe skip that one 
- Stars eg: theta or centaurus
- Greek history
- Simpson characters or TV shows
- Movie character names: eg: yoda or c3po
- Vegas hotel names
- Beer or wine

After you’ve associated a naming scheme to your servers use that as your main reference and get your clients in the habit of knowing which server they’re on. The best way to keep track of all your servers would be to setup a nice status report page for clients to see that have named / IP pairs and their online/offline status. Also let your clients know what server they’re on in their signup email.

Have fun and go make up some cool server names and share them with us!
