-Once you have a domain you would like to use for the server'​s hostname, you will need to choose a subdomain within that domain that is not used for anything else.

Often, people will choose a subdomain like ''​%%host%%''​ or ''​%%server%%''​. For example, if the domain being used is ''​%%domain.tld%%''​ then the hostname would be something like ''​%%host.domain.tld%%''​ or ''​%%server.domain.tld%%''​.
  
 Part of this is to make sure the hostname will resolve to this server, rather than to another server you might have with the same domain. But also, it is much more difficult((and not recommended)) to configure a subdomain for something else if it is identical to the server'​s hostname. Part of this is to make sure the hostname will resolve to this server, rather than to another server you might have with the same domain.
