Hi all, I have been in the process of building our company's intranet. I started developing on our root site but right now it's blank and not being used. The Production site is using the /sites/ extension URL:

 

Original "test" site: https://abcprop.sharepoint.com 
New live site: https://abcprop.sharepoint.com/sites/company-intranet

 

 

I want to point the original URL to my Production ready "live" site, of course without ruining all my progress made on https://abcprop.sharepoint.com/sites/company-intranet... The end goal being what I have ready on https://abcprop.sharepoint.com/sites/company-intranet can be accessed from URL https://abcprop.sharepoint.com

 

How can this be accomplished?

 

Thank you in advance,

Morghan

Hello, looks like you want to replace the root site
take a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/modern-root-site#replace-your-root-site
take into account all redirect considerations and limitations...

Hi @Andres Gorzelany - thank you for your reply. I read through those articles but have a few follow-up questions - hoping you can help. I am terribly afraid of losing all my content and design aspects. I have had to rebuild twice already since starting...

 

How my URL's are today -

Root: www.xxxxprop.sharepoint.com
Current Production ready site: www.xxxxprop.sharepoint.com/sites/center-intranet

 

 

When I make the Production ready site (on the right) the new Root site, will it's URL change to www.xxxxprop/sharepoint.com? Will it keep the design aspects and content, etc. you see below?

What I would do in this case is to first test with a dummy site so you can be sure of the impact

for example

https://m365xxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/dummysite

becoming

https://m365xxxxxx.sharepoint.com/

so you can evaluate the change.

Hi @Andres Gorzelany - is there a way I can simply add my own redirect? i.e., manually point https://m365xxxxxx.sharepoint.com/ to https://m365xxxxxx.sharepoint.com/sites/dummysite ?
