The /etc/hostname file configures the name of the local system that is set during boot, with the sethostname(2) system call. It should
contain a single newline-terminated host name string. The host name may be a free-form string up to 64 characters in length, however it is
recommended that it consists only of 7bit ASCII lower-case characters and no spaces or dots, and limits itself to the format allowed for

The simple configuration file format of /etc/hostname originates from Debian GNU/Linux.
