O365 custom domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Am having Office 365 Business Essentials plan. I created a private site collection some time back under the name and the users were having usernames in the form of

    Now, I want to change the domain to a user friendly one hence I bought a private domain from GoDaddy as directed by O365. I have set up this domain in the Office 365 admin centre as default one and I completed the configuration steps (Cname, DNS etc), I also got the status "Setup complete".

    I did some googling and found that its not possible to replace the root domain of a private site collection with a custom domain. I read that I need to get a new subscription, I then got a new Office 365 Business Essentials subscription. Now I have 2 subscriptions in my Office 365 admin centre but yet I have no clue as how I can create a new private site collection with the new custom domain. 

    Cant I have a private site collection under the domain
