Set a hostname in Fedora

I know I have not been very active lately, but I came across a convenient command line tool to set a host name in Fedora. While it is possible to set a host name by manually editing a few system files, I recently came across a command that makes it even easier.

sudo hostnamectl set-hostname $new_hostname

Just set “$new_hostname” to your desired host name.
