It is possible but optional to configure the single-server hostname so that it is easier to remember.

  1. Run the following command to know the current server name:

    hostname

  2. Edit the following file:

    As root user

    /etc/hosts

  3. Add the following lines:

    127.0.0.1 localhost $HOSTNAME
    ::1 localhost $HOSTNAME
