BitFolk server naming

From BitFolk
Jump to: navigation, search

Participating in server naming is fun for all the family. For some value of 'fun'. BitFolk customers may suggest names for new servers; BitFolk picks one shortly before installation.

Naming schemes

BitFolk dom0 servers

Alcohol-related, preferably a brand or something else reasonably obscure. See previous choices for examples. You'll get the hang of it.

A good name is generally:

  • Short
  • Unusual
  • Easy to type/pronounce

Please link to documentary evidence that there actually is an alcoholic beverage by your suggested name, if it's not obvious.

Your previous unused suggestions will carry over to the next round - no need to re-submit them.
