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.
Thanks for your feedback! Just a note to let you know that we’re building your suggestion now. We plan to increase availability to this feature as we continue improving the tech, and ensuring a smooth experience across Office 365 following the URL changes in SharePoint Online.
Any update Microsoft? We really need this to continue to use your platform, it is getting to a point where enough executives are going to get feed up with the fact that our site does not match our company branding. This is the top-requested feature on SharePoint user voice. Please make it happen. Thank you,

Also, I must add it would be great to be able to have sub-tenant capability. For those situations when companies have subsidiaries and they want to manage everything from one point but want separation and isolation between the different companies.

This is the absolute worst lacking function of the entire O365 suite, some prior admin wanted to demo 365, and locked the domain in to a misspelling of our company which is how all the users will have to access sharepoint = very poor user adoption, angry executives, etc = they have chosen box.com instead!!!
Desperate for this feature. We have merged with several companies and they're currently all getting our branding and name by default which is bad. Really need the ability to make our O365 generic.
This is something that any company in the modern age using 365 and going through branding merger etc is going to need...
please sort your lives out MS

We need this because of company merger and new name. Is there a link for site/tenant rename feature fro further information.
Brent Pirolli commented
... They've released the site rename feature... nothing on the more important tenant mask feature.

What's taking so long?
Hi Bill, Matthew, Microsoft. We are desperate to rename our Tenancy before we start using SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive. We have held off rolling out all the collab tools so as not to add to the amount of work required to change tenancy name. SharePoint root name change or url name change would be enough. When will this be available ?

In our case, Our Partner wrote "Colegio" instead of "liceo", so in order to have a correct branding, a way that it can be done is by using a domain that is in the list of domins and create a subdomain.sharepoint.com from the selected domain.

Any news about this? I manage two business and I need this feature. We are in the final Q3 of 2019. When this will be available?
Sarah Cullen commented
we need this change as our company name has changed
i also need the same kind of possibility/service as our company name changed.
We also need to be able to edit sharepoint site urls asap please
I could not find it on the roadmap. Uservoice out of sync with development and roadmaps? World first?

Is there a way to get on the targeted release for this feature? We urgently need this for our SharePoint sites.
"Start-SPOSiteRename : Error Code: -5,This site address can't be changed."

Can you please provide any update on the availability of this feature as we have a business need that depends on it, otherwise we need to look for alternative providers.

This needs to be fully rolled out ASAP. I am in South Africa and I see there are other companies that can already do this but we still cannot. This is driving me up the walls.
