Support » Networking WordPress » Rename Site Address (URL) in Multisite

    I need to do a simple rename of a site in multisite. For example:

    from to

    Is that as easy as going to the Network Admin level and changing the individual Site Address (URL)? Let me know if there is anything else I must be aware of.

    Thank you in advance.

    (PS: I cannot believe how congested the forums have become over the last 15 years when I started developing in WP!)

    3. Find the domain you want to change
    4. Click Edit
    5. Put in the new domain
    6. And then use a redirection plugin, for example –

    I hope this helps; if not and you’re willing to change the sites URL manually, you can check here –

    Thank you for your reply, however that is not exactly what I want. I was not very clear.

    The domain name is OK. I have a sub-folder structure for my multisite installation and I want to rename the Site URL of a single blog, only. For example:



    I use the phrase “Site Address (URL)” because that is how the blog/site is listed in the Network Sites page. Sorry for the confusion.

    WordPress didn´t consider that the main page / parent page would change in any way. So it is the easiest way to return with the previous steps to a “normal site”, change the urls and then “activate” Multisite again.
