There are several ways of how to rename Web Site. You can use stsadm -o renameweb command. More details are in MSDN article. But this command does't help you if you want to rename the site with the port. For example if you have http://server08:88/site and want to rename it to new name with the default port then the best way is to create the new site, and then use stsadm -o export/import to move the content between sites.
