How to change the name or URL of your publications

When setting up your beehiiv account, after you have named your publication, you will automatically receive a custom subdomain where your newsletters will live online. It will look like, 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.

Additionally, if you’d prefer to alter the entire URL and use a custom domain instead, you can refer to this article for more information on using domains in beehiiv.
