That's the route I take.  I have shorter, easier to remember names for
all the systems I use, mostly just one word names which are the first
field of the domain name.

Then, in addition, I have some clever (?) stuff that sorts out whether
I'm connecting locally (across the LAN) or remotely to a couple of
systems.  Thus I can just type 'ssh esprimo' to conenct to my desktop
system at home whether I'm using a laptop downstairs or I'm away from
home somewhere.

Finally I have local DNS on the LAN at home so all systems are
accessible by their name alone when on the LAN.
