  • Hi,

    I believe one of the following can be tried out

    -> Extend the existing web application whose hostname is changed. While extending the web application provide the new host header and same port which was used before.

    -> Change the AAM for this web application by editing the public url's and change the url in the default zone. Provide your new host header here. Now, you need to go to IIS & select the web application, edit the bindings to match your new host header.

    -> Take a backup of the content database/s used by this web application. Delete the web application, recreate it with the new host header. Add the old content database to this web application.

    Please test in lower environments and gradually move to higher environments. Also, we can hear from others if there is any other best way to do this.
