Servers Installation recommendation

Gentelmen ,

I have to install multiple environments for (IHS, WAS and WPS) . so I thought to ask what is the best approach to use regarding the portal name/ hostname/ nodes name/ etc.

Should we use the FQDN or the simply the unqualified hostname. I'm thinking to add an entry to my host file, i.e. "1270.0.1 portal", having the name not related to the machine make it possible to just copy it over another one. in this case my development, uat, production and dr environment will have the installation done as "portal" , any harm in this ?

Currently we are doing the dev & uat environments (exact and no clustering ) , I'm thinking to have them both named "portal" and then for the certificate we can use the FQDN, like this


Any recommendation regarding this ?
