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.

Any update on this long awaited feature? This is the final step in us losing our old brand name which has significant customer and staff implications!

This is a much needed feature. At my previous job, we sold our main domain name and then had to spend a lot of money and time migrating our Office 365 to a new tenant so that we could free up that domain name.

How do you get on the Private Preview? Are there any updates?
It's been 4 months since last update.
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?
