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.
Microsoft Azure -> Custom domain names -> Add custom domain:
"To add a domain, you must already own a domain name and have the necessary sign-in credentials to update the DNS records with your domain name registrar."
There is no way to verify an additional ***.onmicrosoft.com domain. It remains in an 'unverified' state and therefore cannot be used.
When clicking on it, it asks to be verified:
"To use ***.onmicrosoft.com with your Azure AD, create a new TXT record with your domain name registrar using the info below."
Can you clarify what you mean please?

You can change your initial domain now from Azure AD, Custom Domain page. Just add a new ***.onmicrosoft.com and after clicking this domain, you will see "change initial domain" link.
If there is anyway to join the private preview for this, please let me know. Thanks!
Yes, this is needed, as early 365 accounts are incorrect names and many far too long and do not match business names later on.
Many sharepoint sites have reached a filename limit
Any ETA yet?

This blog post suggests there may be a private preview available - https://steveknutson.blog/2020/02/08/office-365-change-sharepoint-url/
We desperately need to update our sharepoint tenant domain name following a re-brand. Migrating our mailboxes, sharepoint, OneDrive, etc to a new tenant is going to be a large and difficult undertaking.
We would love to be considered for private preview!

Do you have any update on this? We have 2 years waiting to have this feature available.
Please make this a reality

Azure portal domain management gives opportunity to change "initial domain (onmicrosoft.com)". But the problem is new initial domain does not work on Sharepoint and OneDrivee, now all domain management of company is a mess and Microsoft respond very slow to my ticket.

Please keep me updated, looking forward to this update!!!

This is very useful for rebranding issues. Please respond asap!
I need this for my business rebrand as well. I really look forward to this feature

Please do so. It makes no sense that you can manage several domains but can't customise the sharepoint url... It would be even better if you could change the onmicrosoft domain too instead of having to create a full new account :(

I'm interested in this change!
Definitely need this. Our legal entity has changed, the company has grown, both internal and external users are totally confused when we share documents.
I need this too. Our tenant name was automatically created when I signed up for Azure some years back. Unfortunately it has my full name, followed by an abbreviated company name. Now we use 365 it looks really unprofessional.
Absolutely agreed. I can't believe Microsoft has not fixed this yet. Really cannot implement SharepoInt due to this issue as we have multiple companies in single tenant. Surprisingly o365 allows you create multiple domains but unable to configure respective services under that domain.

Went through a Rebrand 2 years ago and still have our old name in our SharePoint and OneDrive URL's, desperately need this function! Who do you contact to get into the preview or insight into general release date?
Putting a vote for this capability in as well. Any updates at all on public preview, private preview, general release?

great suggestion, useful, a must to have especially when I only need one product (onedrive only for example) without managing Exchange
