Change the hostname of your Raspberry Pi

Changing the hostname of your Raspberry Pi is easy.
Just follow these simple steps:


SSH into your box with ssh pi@{IP} and enter your password.


Edit the hostname in /etc/hostname. Use an editor of your choice to do so (i prefer nano).
sudo nano /etc/hostname

Change the name to whatever you like and save it.


Now you need to edit the name in /etc/hosts right next to sudo nano /etc/hosts

Note: the name in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts need to be identical so double check for typos.


Reboot your box with sudo reboot.
