Enable renaming the SPO tenant domain
Currently the site collection URLs are fixed as https://tenant.sharepoint.com and cannot be changed. This does not fit with flexible cloud-based solutions - business needs will inevitably result in an organisation changing it's name during its lifetime (mergers, acquisitions, rebranding etc). While it may not be possible to change it so that entirely custom domains are used (eg contoso.com, instead of sharepoint.com), it must be possible to allow the sub-domain to be changed (eg. newtenant.sharepoint.com)? Please?
Migrating an entire organisation (likely to include Exchange, Skype, Sharepoint and Onedrive data!!) to a new Tenancy is absolutely not a viable option.
Providing a consistent user experience across M365 that continues to function as expected is a very complex problem which we have been validating in a Private Preview Program.
The good news is that we are once again able to accept additional nominations into the Private Preview. If you would like to nominate yourself you can do so at https://aka.ms/SPOTenantRenameNomination. Please note that a nomination does not necessarily mean that you will be accepted. We are reviewing these on a case by case basis and will only be in contact if accepted.
For more information about renaming your SharePoint domain including the current limitations and process visit https://aka.ms/SPOTenantRename.
Thanks for help through the private preview option. We were able to rename our sites without any issues.

This should have been possible from the start. Other vendors had this kind of problems on the 90s...

Disgusting that Microsoft quietly removed the much larger and popular request to achieve this same result at a tenant level. After blowing off the request for years and deleting the votes on numerous occasions they're finally getting rid of uservoice but have strategically left this post in place.
This URL was the vote for renaming the prefix for the entire tenant (not just SharePoint) e.g. contoso.onmicrosoft.com to fabrikim.onmicrosoft.com
But it's been replaced by a splash page. Sure this is a step in the right direction, but where is your customer service Microsoft? After so many years of waiting, a statement at the last Ignite and a "working on it" post on the forum itself you've just dropped it completely?
Thank you for accepting my application to rename our site. Just finished and it was smooth.
Hopefully, this feature can be rolled out to everyone soon!
But I do recommend while the link is open above for nominations to at least try to be a part of the private preview. The date is last month, but I signed up this past week. Sign up!!!

I tried today 06/18/2021 and I received a erro, not implemented (after update my SPO Commands).
I followed steps at documentation (it's wrong steps).

Any update on this? It would be really useful to let us change the sub-domain at the very least!
Really need to get it changed as it was never thought through well enough when created and now looks silly. to have something akin to "ABCOnlineOutlook.sharepoint.com" in the URL..
Hello Microsoft team, some partners and customers are asking us for an update about this feature and want to know if there is any new date for accepting participants for the preview program, I really appreciate your comments, thank you!
still need this feature for our clients!
How is it possible that it takes more than 5 years to change that ?
only been a year come on man!
"We will provide another update within the next few months."
.....last update 6 months ago

Half a year since last status, please let us know where this is at? We need it available asap!
Dear MS Team,
It is a very important aspect for most of the customers to have their On-Premise SharePoint URLs to be mapped with the SharePoint Online URLs in terms of keeping the same domain names instead of *.SharePoint.com.
Please share the latest updates on this request.
How can orgs join the private preview?
I wish I could ignore my clients problems for 5 years by updating them every other year or so by saying, "we're working on it".
This is quite an important requirement when you need it, Hopefully the few things aren't deal breakers and we'll see it soon
@Admin, Any update?
hurry up and get it done!

How do we get in on the Preview of this feature? Any ETA on a release?
