How to Change the Permalink of an Individual WordPress Post or Page?

Introduction:

A permalink is a “permanent link” used to redirect users to their webpage. It should typically not be modified, as this could destroy links to the associated page.

Permalinks are made up of your site's domain name and a slug. Make sure your permalinks are both user and SEO-friendly.

For example, https://demo.com/ is a website URL, https://demo.com/blog, is a blog here, and https://demo.com/blog/page1 is a single post that follows a permalink structure.
