How does an FBO refer to the parking spots on the ramp? What is the official term? And is there some sort of an identifier, a "ramp number"? Is this standardized, like runway numbers, or does it vary from FBO to FBO? Are there numbers painted on the ramp?

From the airports I've flown into, it's usually, you're just guided into a spot, and most often, there aren't any lines there, mainly since an FBO should be able to generally serve something as small as a Cessna, to a Gulfstream, or bigger. Flight School Ramps might have painted lines and dedicated parking for their fleet, but they know who will be parking there and what type.
