comment How to translate “build server”
First, this is a language study and linguistics site, not a translation service, please show some research effort in the question. Second, I am not aware of a standardized way to express the concept of 'a drop', 'a build', or 'a release' in Chinese, at least not in Mainland China. 'To build' is commonly translated into '构建', hence 'build server' is '构建服务器'. You need to use it in the sentence in a smart way to avoid confusion with 'to build a server'.

@user58955 免水洗手液 also works. Both sound correct and natural to me.

@hippietrail I wasn't sure if you want to express strictly 'hand sanitizer' or just 'hand soap', so I just explain the options and leave it to you to choose:)

@phoeagon I know. I am trying to explain the connotation of 优先 here, but now I see how the answer could be confusing in that regard. I'll update it. Thanks.

comment non-standard tone pronunciation
I think it's in Taiwan people pronounce 为 in 因为 as 4th tone instead of 2nd tone, it's a dialectal thing.

There are many usages for these words, do you have a specific context in mind?

comment Which characters typically occur only within names?
Since there is no real regulatory restrictions on names, distribution of characters is rather a statistical result for a given geographic and time range. Is that what you're looking for?
