Tenant Update name or SharePoint URL?

Tenant Update name or SharePoint URL?

It has recently become possible to change the SharePoint-domain name for your organisation in Microsoft 365. For example, if the name of your organisation changes from 'Contoso' to 'Fabrikam', you can change contoso.sharepoint.com to fabrikam.sharepoint.com.

Create a new tenant

A Office 365 tenant, or Microsoft 365 tenant or Azure tenant is the same regardless of which service you are using. When your organisation uses Microsoft's services, Microsoft creates a tenant where only you get access rights. This is an isolated environment completely separate from the other Office 365 customers.

You can add your mail e-domain to your tenant. This can only be done on one tenant. So if you want to experiment, Better not with your organisation domain.

Your tenant has a unique tenant name, organization.onmicrosoft.com. You can never change this name after you have created your tenant. However, it is now possible to change the most visible name for end users with these instructions.

You can create a new tenant via these instructions.
