In Linux, the useradd and usermod commands are used to create and manage user accounts.

It's important to note that both useradd and usermod require root privileges, so they need to be run with sudo

The useradd command is used to create a new user account on the system

By default, it creates a new home directory for the user under /home

The syntax of useradd command is:"sudo useradd [options] username"

On the other hand the usermod command is used to modify an existing user account on the system.

usermod can be used to change the user's home directory, login shell, password, and other account attributes.

The syntax of useradd command is:"sudo usermod [options] username"
