How to change the site name in SharePoint 2013?

Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to change the site name "pm-server" (http://pm-server:2018/) to other name without changing the name of the server. Because we know that it's the name of the SharePoint server...

Please advise...

Thank you!

Is this for a public facing site or for an internal server?

Just realised you said SP 2013 -.- Never mind.

Any set up the URL you want in your DNS and have it pointing to your Sharepoint front end servers.  Do you have more than one front end?

Hello there David! Thanks for your kind response...

This will be used internally (for the meantime) and not for public yet.

Maybe later we'll set it publicly...

Would it be possible? Is it same process?
David Sheehan-Dunne

That would be a completely different process.  If you wanted to access it externally, there are two ways to go about doing it.  Have a WFE server in the DMZ zone, or go for the hybrid approach. The Hybrid approach is using office 365 externally and SP2013  internally.  This makes it more secure.  

Unfortunately I can't with that process as I haven't got to that stage myself.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

You said: “Have a WFE server in the DMZ zone, or go for the hybrid approach.”

Even we just need it Internally and let’s forget about external access, as we need to plan for that... but for the meantime, we only need to change the site’s name without changing the name of the server...
From “pm-server:2018” to “sproduct:2018”.
