Site URL - Changing

A site's URL, abc.legalserver.org, can be changed, for example to ourshinynewname.legalserver.org, but it is billable work.

If you are still onboarding and only have a demo site, this is 4 hours at our standard hourly rate. If you have a demo and live site, both must be changed, and this is 8 hours at our standard hourly rate. Standard hourly rate is currently $250/hour.

Why is this so expensive? Your site's name or abbreviation, the "abc" in abc.legalserver.org, is also part of the database name, web server configuration, and is the "name" of your site in the code and maintenance routines. So databases must be renamed, code checked, etc. In other words, it is not a simple DNS name change.

Site administrators can change the Site Logo and Site Name in the Titlebar at any time without changing the site's URL.

If you want to change your site's URL, please file a ticket from your site requesting it. We will check availability of the new name and send an invoice if available, or let you know if it is not available.
