Change hostname on CentOS server

If your hosting provider has given you a rubbish or branded hostname for your server, you'll be pleased to know there is a simple way to see and change the hostname on a CentOS server.
sysctl kernel.hostname
to read the current hostname, and:
sysctl kernel.hostname=YOUR_SERVER_NAME
to change it.
