How to change base URL or domain in sitemap - Django
A sitemap is the first important SEO step that elaborates a website's content to search engines. It provides information to search engines about the available content on our site, which helps them to crawl webpages for indexing. Sometimes we have to change the base URL or the domain name in our sitemap. This can be because of using multiple domains to the same database or migrating the same website to another domain.
So today I am going to teach you how you can change the base URL or domain name in Django sitemap. This task is pretty much easy and simple as well.

Changing base URL in Sitemap
To change the base URL first, you have to go into your "sitemaps.py" file. Please note that the file name may be different obviously. The important thing is, you have to just open the python file which is responsible for the sitemap generation.
Now, to change the domain/base-url we have to override the get_urls() method.
You have to do something like this :
from django.contrib.sitemaps import Sitemap
from Blogs.models import blogs
from django.contrib.sites.models import Site
changefreq = "monthly"
priority = 0.5
def get_urls(self, site=None, **kwargs):
site = Site(domain='www.NewDomain.com', name='www.NewDomain.com')
return super(MyBlogSitemap, self).get_urls(site=site, **kwargs)
Here NewDomain.com is the new domain or the base URL which will be used in the sitemap instead of the old domain.
