Ubuntu 20.04 LTS change hostname permanently

Originally published at: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-20-04-lts-change-hostname-permanently/

I am a brand-new Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS VM user. By default, my server name to ‘localhost’ during cloud installation, but now I would like to change the computer name to ‘ubuntu-2004-nixcraft’. Can you tell me how do I remove the localhost and set it to ubuntu-2004-nixcraft on Ubuntu 20.04 Linux? How do I change the Ubuntu computer name from ‘localhost’ to ‘ubuntu-2004-nixcraft’? Can you tell me more about Ubuntu Linux change hostname command?
