I have a Server 2016 stand along server (not VPS and not part of a domain)

When I set up a Linux web server I usually name the web server using a FQDN, is this the best practice for a Windows server?

Currently the server is just named some generic name, probably what windows installation gave it during install.

Just wondering if there was a best practice for naming a Windows Server and I assume we do that through Computer —> properties —>  Advanced System Settings —–> Computer Name
