How to change the name or URL of your publications

After you have named your publication when setting up your account, you will automatically receive a beehiiv subdomain where your newsletters will live online. It will look like your-publication.beehiiv.com, with the ‘your-publication’ part being the name of your newsletter. 

If desired, you can change the ‘your-publication’ part of the URL, or change the name of your newsletter altogether, and this article will explain how to do both of those.

Tech Note: These instructions are only applicable to users on a beehiiv subdomain. If you have a custom domain and want to change your beehiiv URL, you can read more about using custom domains here.
