When I log out of my Mac mini server using Terminal it says:

Connection to www.kannhost.co.uk closed.

(www.kannhost.co.uk is one of the domains that I host and have set up using vhosts.php)

How can I change the name of the server to show the following:

Connection to Mac mini closed.

What command are you using to SSH into the server to begin with? –  Matt Love Apr 12 '12 at 17:04
I've set up an alias to the server and then get in by ssh macmini . Then asks my password. then I'm in. I go to exit and then it says about the connection closed –  Wheelz Apr 12 '12 at 17:09
What does that alias point to? –  Matt Love Apr 12 '12 at 20:23
