Create DNS records at BIZCN for Office 365

If BIZCN is your DNS hosting provider, follow the steps in this article to verify your domain and set up DNS records for email, Lync, and so on.

These are the main records to add.

After you add these records at BIZCN, your domain will be set up to work with Office 365 services.

If you have a SharePoint Online Public Website, you can set it up to use your custom domain for the website URL address, like www.your_domain.com.

Note: Typically it takes about 15 minutes for DNS changes to take effect. However, it can occasionally take longer for a change you've made to update across the Internet's DNS system.

Add a TXT record for verification

Before you use your domain with Office 365, we have to make sure that you own it. Your ability to log in to your account at your domain registrar and create the DNS record proves to Office 365 that you own the domain.

Note:  This record is used only to verify that you own your domain; it doesn’t affect anything else. You can delete it later, if you like.

  1. In your browser, go to the BIZCN website and sign in.

    Sign in to BIZCN

  2. In the left navigation pane, in the 域名服务 (domain service) section, click 域名列表 (domain list).

    Click "域名列表"

  3. Set the search conditions, and then click 查询 (search).

    • 字符串记录 (value): Paste the Destination or Points to Address from the table in Office 365, for example MS=msXXXXXXX. How do I find this?

    Add MX record

  8. Click 增加 (add).

Now that you've added the record at your domain registrar's site, you'll go back to Office 365 and request Office 365 to look for the record.

When Office 365 finds the correct TXT record, your domain is verified.

  1. Go to the Domains page.

  2. On the Manage domains page, select the domain that you are verifying and then, in the Action column for that domain, choose Start setup.

    O365-BP-Verify-1-2

  3. On the Add this TXT record to show you own domain_name page, choose Okay, I've added the record.
