    What exactly is the purpose of 'Full Hostname' and what's the correct way of specifying the hostname?

    Hostname! I have no idea what it's purpose is and what it does.

    A server hostname is the name of the server. i.e. server1.host.com. Each server will have a different hostname. This is used to identify the server for all outgoing mail and other things that require a servername. This is a basic server requirement to have a hostname.

    I've noticed I named my hostname mydomain.com instead of srv1.mydomain.com. Will this create any problem?

    here's how things are setup:

    my main domain is: mydomain.com
    my Full Hostname is: mydomain.com
    my primary dns is: ns1.mydomain.com
    my secondary dns is: ns2.mydomain.com
