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.
We are continuing to validate this long-awaited feature in a Private Preview Program with a subset of customers. Although feedback has been very positive we have identified a few things that we still need to address before we start making this more generally available. We appreciate that this is taking time, however providing a consistent user experience across M365 that continues to function as expected is a complex problem. We will provide another update within the next few months.
We have been waiting for this ability for over 2 years now. It has been several months since there has been an update from Microsoft. This doesn't make Microsoft look good when they leave their business clients in the dark.
Any updates? How do I get in the Pilot?
Been visiting this page since 2016 hoping for an update.

any update on this?
Happy to be a test case...
Marketing team is not amused.
We changed our company name 4 years ago, and while we're using aliases for email addresses, etc. for our current domain, our Sharepoint content remains on our previous tenant name/domain. We're desperate for the ability to change the "alias" to the primary domain/tenant instead of continuing to use the tenant name from 4 years ago. Any updates on this?
@Microsoft, Any update? It has been a few months ...
Despite what one would assume with the Powershell commands name the Start-SPOTenantRename renames the site not the tenant as desired.
Seems mad that we still cant do this after so many years.
Tenant to Tenant migrations are getting ever more complex now with Teams, Stream etc involved and as a school the cost is getting unviable if we wanted to move everything we need across to a new tenant.
Would happily take part in the previews if it meant we could get it done without migrating.
This rename feature of the root site name is really a MUST-Have. Our company changed its name and still our sharepoint has the old company's name...
hello, there is a way to get MS attention and make the SharePoint tenant rename , engage with your MS rep , contact support escalation group in CTS SharePoint and O365 Support
Not sure if this guys is still around but he helped us with our tenant rename
I have 0 faith that Microsoft will ever fix this issue. I can't imagine how a public web service does not allow users to use their own domain or change the name of their site. I guess Microsoft would never know that small business have a need to change names at times, especially with accusations. Anyway, I've noticed Microsoft is switching away from using "User Voice" in their other forums, so sadly I expect this request will simply get deleted soon. The rename Office 365 tenant was the number 1 requested feature on Office 365 user voice for the last 5 years with thousands of requests, but since that user voice is closed, there is no way to check if that fix that was "coming soon" will ever be available. :(
This was opened 5 years ago. For reference, March 30, 2016 was the same day Microsoft starting shipping the first Hololens to developers. What are the odds we can get this implemented before the Hololens 3 is released? To be honest, my money is on the Hololens team.
Much needed for us also! Management does not like to see old company name referenced, and it's preventing us from using Sharepoint to it's fullest.
Hello! Please provide an update to this popular request. The last update was December of last year. As seen in various comments, there have been plenty of test users that have had success with the rename.

Also here we waiting for this improve. come on guys :D
Can someone share here an ETA?
Companies change their name. Looks unprofessional being stuck with old references such as the original name when signing up to MS
This is a big-time must-have feature in my opinion. We just did a name change at our office and it doesn't look very professional that our SharePoint sites still show our old company name in the web address.
