Office 365 doesn’t include a public website for your business. If you want to set one up, consider using a Microsoft partner, such as GoDaddy or WIX.

  1. From the Office 365 admin center, go to Resources, and then choose Public website.

  2. Choose Learn more under one of the options, and then sign up with a website partner and use their tools to set up and design your site.

  3. When you're finished, you might need to update your domain name in Office 365 to point to your new website. Navigate to Domains in the Office 365 admin center, select your domain, and update your domain name.

If you have a public website already, you can leave it where it is and use Office 365 for everything else, like email and collaboration.

If you don't have a website and want to set one up, consider one of our website partners.

From the admin center, go to Resources, then Public website.

Both GoDaddy and WIX offer professional website templates and technical support, and both come with exclusive discounts for Office 365 customers. Choose Learn more.

In the case of GoDaddy, sign up for a website plan that fits your business. Once you've signed up, go to the website designer and open your site. Then edit and start designing your business website, which you can learn more about at GoDaddy.

When finished, you may need to update your domain name so it points to your new website. To do that, go to the Office 365 admin center, open Domains, and update your domain name.

You're done setting up a public website with Office 365.
