Make it possible to change the tenant name in Office365
Iv realized that there is no option to change the tenant name in Office365.
This would be a great tool for businesses that change their name and want to keep their current solution in Office365.
A simple task like changing the tenant name for Office365 would save businesses allot of time.
The functionality to make it possible to change the name of an O365 tenant, especially with Sharepoint Online in mind, is being planned. There is no ETA at this time though.
Why isn't this available already!!!!
Ditto on making this a priority please; we use O365 for a volunteer NFP organization which really would benefit from being able to be renamed (private preview, even?)
When will it go public release?
Very much needed. Surprising that this is not an option yet when you have companies purchasing other companies & re-branding.

This would defiantly help and would like to see this come to fruition.
Samuel Murray commented
This would be greatly appreciated
We need this as well!
We really need this for our rebrand!
Desperately needed - why does this take so long?

Ran across Steve's blog:
Lets get this rolling please.

Out of votes, but supported
We purchased using GoDaddy. And are stuck with the URL NETORGFT111111111.MYSHAREPOINT.COM.
It looks weird when we share things with customers via onedrive. Can't wait to be able to change the URL to something more friendly.

This should have been there from the beginning!
Its very common and logical for companies to merge and or aquisition!
Roberto Fontana commented
This is a "must have" feature.

I hope this is possible. We just started our Office 365 service and I don't know why, but the Sharepoint tenant already had our admin's name. We haven't started using sharepoint yet, but will soon. So, in our case, it's okay to start with a brand new sharepoint site if needed. Only thing we wouldn't want to re-do would be Exchange/Email accounts.

This is *so* important

Here is someone who went through the Sharepoint Tenant Rename Pilot Program that was in Preview late last year, available only to customers with an O365 Enterprise Agreement and only if you contacted your EA rep to get the appropriate form to fill out which was a long waiver saying if your tenant breaks its not on MS to fix it.

If it's possible I'd love to be included in the preview for this feature, I'm currently stuck with a tenant url that doesn't match our business name
I had a case with 365-support the day before yesterday and the only thing the support technician could say was like "sorry, it's several months due to it's a critical functionality and I can't promise anything"
365 is our core strategic platform. Our organisation offers 365 to students however due to our current domain we do not utilise the full 365 functions to avoid confusion. Our domain name doesn't match us accurately. We would love to rename.
