Which are some items in your checklist when you launch a new server? I'm writing a blog post and as a basic I go for:
- Disabling SSH with password and root access
- Firewall configuration
- Fail2ban or other sort of protection.

@betoissues You forgot the most important part: setting up a fancy colorful shell prompt to flex on all the imaginary people looking over my shoulder.

@Seirdy hahaha, haven't done that one yet. it's actually useful to notice you're running a command remotely 🤷🏻‍♂️

@betoissues I make a prompt segment show the hostname, and make it only show if $SSH_CONNECTION isn't set.

@Seirdy I should... do that. Forget my previous idea 😅
