    You have missed an important file :

    Enter your hostname into this file for it to persist across reboots (eg while setting it with the hostname command).

    Else you will have to issue the hostname command each time to set the hostname.

  2. If you are using CentOS 7, you can change the hostname with the hostnamectl command:
    hostnamectl set-hostname
