Slackware dhcp network setup enter hostname

The first step in network setup requires you to provide a name for your Linux machine. The computer name in Linux system is called a hostname. Put a single word as a hostname, i.e linuxsvr, linuxhost, server1. Do not put dot (.) or space.

Just enter a hostname alone, no domain name. You don't have to think hard for the name if you didn't plan for this yet, just put whatever name that comes to your mind. You can change the hostname later when the installation is complete.
