It's not necessary to remove old origin and create a new one. You can just change the existing origin url:
git remote set-url origin NEW_URL

So does this preserve editing history?

Wow 😲, Eugene. Thanks for the set-url option.

To borrow from SQL, my posts is using "DELETE" then "INSERT"

while your command does an "UPDATE".

Much simpler.
