This is a great example of why we should not use abbreviations.
We have enough space in the DNS names, we have big storage so it should be a big deal of writing nice names.
I would recommend naming the host like that:
Of course, this could be possible if the resources in aws could have larger names, but unfortunately, they are limited and you are forced to use abbreviations.
so productName-us-east-1-production-web-1 will be in aws productName-us-east-1-prod-web-1
If you are doing a deploys of a single product per account you might be lucky and make it look good again by skipping the product name.
I found great example when you do abbreviations
company_name:prodevelopment:standard:app:ecs – is this the prod, or it is the development?
