    Is the server name the same as the host name?

    If they're not the same, how do I find the server name?

    Most of the time server name and hostname will be the same. It depends on the terminology of whatever you're dealing with.

    If you're talking about server name like: server1.somedomain.tld, then server name and hostname are the same.

    Also in httpd.conf the server name directive would be www.yourdomain.com and not host.yourdomain.com.
