How to change hostname in Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus


Hostname can be changed in Ubuntu 17.4  manually by editing this files
and then restarting Hostname Service by

service hostname restart
It sometimes produces errors like

Failed to restart hostname.service: Unit hostname.service is masked.

Best Method for new versions of Ubuntu is:

sudo hostnamectl set-hostname NewHostName

Its work very well and produces no error.
