If you're not doing any clustering and know that you will pretty much only
ever use the one instance, your can name it "localhost" and that'll make it
run on any machine. It's a bit of a shortcut if you know that you won't be
needing any Erlang style distribution anytime soon.

As soon as distributed nodes need to talk, you have to set it up properly.
