When working in an intranet, it's often necessary to set up links to other computers (HTTP hyperlinks or shortcuts, hostname in various server config files, SSH shortcuts etc.).
Technically, both should be the same (as long as the domain search list is set up correctly). However, I obviously need to choose one option.
So, is there any reason to prefer one over the other? What is the better option, especially with regards to later changes in the network, and to avoid maintenance problems?
