SharePoint online custom URL

Hi,

Is it possible to add an (DNS ?) entry or something else to have a second URL for a specific SharePoint Online site collection?
For example, we have the following site collection: companyxyz.sharepoint.com/sites/support

Would it be possible to create or change something (network related?) so that users can use support.companyxyz.com?

We are migrating from a SharePoint on-premise to SharePoint Online, and for 1 specific site collection we want to have this setup (because there are a lot of links pointing to support.companyxyz.com)

Thanks.

No.

But what you can do is stand up a web server/service to perform a redirect. For example, you could use IIS' redirect functionality to have https://support.example.com redirect to any site you wish.

This will require you standing up an IIS or other server.

"Front Doors" is part of azure, so we've added a DNS entry to point to sharepoint urls to front door, which then translates it to whatever sharepoint site you want. Saves from the headache of an additional IIS server to do that for you.

Thanks for the hint on front doors.

I got the redirection working so far, with the limitation that the (user-hostile) domain name of company.sharepoint.com/SitePages/... appears in address bar. Is there a way to preserve the user-friendly domain name (e.g. intranet.company.com/SitePages/...) in the adress bar?

If yes, what are the settings (route type, redirection type, host preservce/replate, ...) to use?

Many regards.

I think you should add domain url in O365 Administrator
