Change nameservers to Office 365

Contributors: Peter Baumgartner

Check the Domains FAQ if you don't find what you're looking for.

If you already have your own domain, you want to configure it to work with Office 365, and you want Office 365 to manage your DNS records for you, you need to do two things:

  • At your DNS host, confirm to Office 365 that you own the domain name.

  • At your domain registrar, change the domain name server records.

After you make these changes, Office 365 handles the rest of the required DNS changes and hosts your Office 365 DNS records.

Click a link for step-by-step instruction at these DNS hosts and domain registrars (for some providers, there are also video steps).
