06:30<@pwoods>Hey elvan
06:31<@pwoods>I saw your earlier message regarding "Set the Hostname" - it's not a requirement, though that can cause issues down the road depending what you're looking to do.
06:32<@pwoods>I spin up Linodes basically daily as part of testing things for customers, I rarely ever set the hostname in those cases, but I'm also going to be deleting them within the next week or so.
06:33<elvan>so at that time i dont have to do it ?
06:34<elvan>in which situation do i have to set a host name?
06:34<@pwoods>What are you setting up the LInode to do?
06:34<elvan>i will be just using my linode for my website
06:34<@pwoods>Some services rely on that being set, some don't.
06:34<@pwoods>I would recommend setting that, then.
06:35<elvan>i mean for my website's hosting i will be using it
06:35<@pwoods>I believe LetsEncrypt requires it if you're using certbot for a self-signed SSL cert
06:35<elvan>i bougt ssl from Namecheap
06:36<@pwoods>Then I would look into their requirements
06:36<elvan>so do you think that should i also get a LetsEncrypt ?
06:37<grawity>certbot doesn't care about the system hostname
06:37<elvan>hmm nice thank you for your help
06:38<elvan>one more queastion for my website the SSL from Namecheap is not enough? İ mean should i also get LetsEncrypt?
06:39<Xion>You only need one SSL provider
06:40<elvan>hmm thank you, u re so kind

06:46<Robdgreat>elvan: the advantage of LetsEncrypt is that it's free. But you've already bought one so you're set
06:47<elvan><Robdgreat> Thank you
06:50<elvan>and you are answering my questions patienly since yesterday. i really appreciate it.
06:52<Robdgreat>you're welcome

10:47<Peng>The other advantage of Let's Encrypt is that it's automated. But if you only have one or two certificates, you might have to do more to maintain automation than you would to manually replace a certificate annually. :D
10:47<Peng>(Hope your CA doesn't have to do another mass revocation.)

13:20<elvan>hi can i ask a question?
13:20<linbot>If you have a question, feel free to just ask it -- someone's always willing to help. If you don't get a response right away, be patient! You may want to read
13:22<FluffyFoxeh>ask all the questions
13:24<elvan> in this guide there is a title like "Update Your System’s hosts File". I want to ask "what is system?" Does it imply my pc or my linode?
13:24<Peng>your Linode
13:24<nuevu>"System" is a pretty generic term and _can_ mean both, depending on the context.
13:24<Peng>True. In this context it's your Linode. :D
13:25<nuevu>But, as Peng said, in the context of the Linode guides, it's almost always going to be your Linode.
13:25<elvan>The hosts file creates static associations between IP addresses and hostnames or domains which the system prioritizes before DNS for name resolution. Open this file in a text editor and add a line for your Linode’s public IP address.
13:25<elvan>in this contex
13:25<elvan>hmm i got it
