How To Change SharePoint Site URL

To change the URL address of a SharePoint site, you need to navigate to the SharePoint Admin Center. Under Admin Centers, choose SharePoint and click on Active Sites. Select the site whose URL you want to change and click on the “i” in a circle. Under the General tab, click Edit next to URL. Type in the new URL and click Save. After a few minutes, you will notice that the site URL has changed. It’s important to note that when you change the URL of a site, it creates a new SharePoint site and redirects the old URL to the new one. Both the old and new addresses are still active.

Modifying the SharePoint site’s URL can be done easily through the SharePoint Admin Center. By following a few simple steps, you can update the URL to better reflect the purpose or branding of your site. Let’s dive into the process.

Steps to Change Sharepoint Site URL

Once you are in the SharePoint Admin Center, locate the Active Sites section and choose the site whose URL you want to change. Click on the “i” in a circle next to the site to access the General settings.

Under the General tab, you will find the option to edit the site URL. Click on the “Edit” button next to URL. A text field will appear where you can enter the new URL for the site.

After entering the new URL, click on the “Save” button to apply the changes. Please note that it may take a few minutes for the site URL to update.

Once the URL has been changed, you will notice that the site is now accessible using the new address. However, it’s important to understand that changing the URL creates a new SharePoint site and redirects the old URL to the new one. This means that both the old and new addresses will remain active.
