after your [fully-qualified-domain-name](https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_(Internet)#Fully_Qualified_Domain_Name_.28FQDN.29}) (FQDN) in the `host_vars` directory including a [yaml](https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/YAMLSyntax.html) list with some host specific configuration variables, e. g. copy another similar host and adjust it.
