General Support: Change website URL
Our group is changing its name. It there any way I can change our e-voice URL to include the new name?
For example change https://e-voice.org.uk/old-name to https://e-voice.org.uk/new-name
I should have also said that our site isn't really live yet. It has been up for a few weeks now but we're still using our old one while we get this one sorted.
We can happily change this for you BUT it won't change all the internal links in your site. Anything going to /old-name/my-lovely-page won't work any more.
A good and reliable choice for a rebrand is to use your own custom domain for your site. This is cheap and easy to do. Go to 123-reg.co.uk or similar registrar site, buy the domain of your choice 'my-awesome-site.com' then with a few simple settings you can use this domain with your e-voice site.

I too would like to change the website URL as the one I've initially used and HUUUUUGE! and we do have an abbreviated version which would work so much better. How do I go about getting this done please?
(I have bought a domain name but the company I bought it from only wants me to use it via their web hosting and my braincell is hurting from trying to figure out how to change it!!)
Yeah, sure, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org the URL that you want to use and I'll change it for you.
Using a custom domain name is generally a fine idea - though yes you do need to be able to edit the DNS settings direclty rather than using any web hosting package.
