Adding a New User

It is not recommended only to have a root user on your server, thus we will set up a new user account.
The process is fairly straightforward:
adduser username
Provide a secure password, and your new user account is created.
We will want occasional higher privileges:
usermod -aG sudo username
And you are done! For increased security, read the Securing Your Instance guide to secure your instance.
