Rename Request for a Web Account
It is highly recommended that you create a new web account and redirect the old site. If you wish to redirect web site visitors to your new account name, you should not rename the account but instead request a new account and use the current account to redirect visitors to the site's new location. This redirect can be in place for 6 months at which point you should close your old account. If you rename the account, web site visitors who use the web address of the previous account name will receive a 404 Not Found error message.
