No. It has to be /etc/hosts

Actually no, it has to be "whatever it is you are using for hostname lookups"

At work I have nothing in /etc/hosts, it's all from dns, and if this is the
case, updating /etc/hosts only would be grounds for summary execution. You
don't want one machine to have a different idea of its domain than all other

Also, don't forget to update services. smtp, http, most things have their own
config files where the domain name is stored
