rename One Drive and sharepoint URL
Currently when we share files through One Drive and SharePoint, a file URL forms automatically, and we cannot rename the URL.
I suggest that URL forms based on our custom domain instead initial domain, so it looks much more professional to those who we wish to share the files to.
Please add this feature as soon as possible. It will help for all the organizations going through Business merging and renaming of their companies

The admin who setup the Offcie 365 account for Creditinfo Jamaica, registered it with the domain rmorriscreditinfojamaica. Now this appears in all our shared one drive links. We need this to be changed to creditinfojamaica. We want to see this change as soon as possible.

I agree. It would be a great thing, if we could select or configure a custom domain name instead of initial domain hardcoded into url.
After passing through a number of mergers and acquisitions, we have a new company name. It is absurd that the only way to change our SharePoint url is to create a new O365 subscription and then migrate everything over. We've never even used SharePoint, so it might have made more sense to allow us some freedom of choice when deciding to deploy instead of auto-creating the URLs when the account was created.
This has always been a major limitation on SharePoint Online that doesn't exist in the other instances. SharePoint on premise, its easy to create alias or alternate domains for a SharePoint site. Heck, its even still there on the SharePoint Online for the now defunct public SharePoint.
I can appreciate not taking up more *.sharepoint.com names, but you've validated our 'vanity' domains for E-mail easily enough. Make it so the entry has to match our validated domains.
If the issue is the SSL and multiple names, Azure already does this for their App Services. They let you upload a company SSL, they validate the CNAME resolves to the right place, then lets you put it in there. If you can't use the Azure services themselves, at least use what they've learned to implement on your service.

This would be very useful. I was unaware that I had to rely on the default URL when I first signed up, or I would have thought more about it.

Also, it would be far better for privacy reasons if documents you share from OneDrive for Business did not have your corporate email address in the URL. I don't share from OneDrive for Business for that reason.
