Here are the most frequently used commands used to manage users:

useradd—This command is used to add a new user account to the system. Its
       options permit the sysadmin to specify the user’s home directory and initial group
       or to create the user with the default home directory and group assignments.

useradd -D—This command sets the system defaults for creating the user’s home
       directory, account expiration date, default group, and command shell. See the
       specific options in man useradd. Used without any arguments, it displays the
       defaults for the system. The default set of files for a user are found in /etc/skel.

userdel—This command completely removes a user’s account (thereby eliminating
  that user’s home directory and all files it contains).

passwd—This command updates the “authentication tokens” used by the password
  management system.
