Alias command in Linux allows to define customized commands or shortcuts in linux shell sessions.
How to make alias commands permanent
Alias commands can be made permanent for a user's session. Simply edit your .bashrc (for bash sessions) file in your home directory and add all your alias commands. Save the file and restart a new terminal session. That's it.

# Alias definitions. # You may want to put all your additions into a separate file like # ~/.bash_aliases, instead of adding them here directly. # See /usr/share/doc/bash-doc/examples in the bash-doc package. # some more ls aliases alias ll='ls -l -a' alias la='ls -A' alias l='ls -CF' alias maretec='cd /home/user/certifs; sudo openvpn --config maretec_ist.ovpn;'
> alias ll='ls -l -a'

ll shortcut for the rest of the session.
