MYNAME(5) BSD Reference Manual MYNAME(5)
myname - default hostname
The myname file is read by netstart(8) at system startup time. /etc/myname contains the symbolic name of the host machine. The file should contain a single line specifying the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the system (e.g. host.example.com). The name must be resolv- able, either by matching a hostname specified in /etc/hosts (see hosts(5)) or through DNS (see resolv.conf(5)). The hostname is set via the hostname(1) utility at boot time. See hostname(7) for a description of hostname resolution. Empty lines and lines beginning with '#' are ignored.
/etc/myname Default hostname.
hostname(1), hosts(5), resolv.conf(5), hostname(7), netstart(8), route(8)
