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 theyâ€™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
- Donâ€™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 youâ€™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 theyâ€™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 theyâ€™re on in their signup email.
Have fun and go make up some cool server names and share them with us!
