What is a friendly name? Friendly names are used to distinguish between packages, allowing you to name them to something with meaning to you, instead of just a list of domain names or IP addresses. This will allow you to name your packages to memorable, or useful, friendly names. This is especially useful if you have a large number of packages, and you want to clarify which package is used for which websites.
