This article relates to adding domains - for email hosting, to your Office 365 subscription; in order to do so, you would have first needed to follow the initial configuration steps for your subscription - see the following:
You will also need to ensure you that are logged into your Blacknight account, for the overall process:
Make Sure Your Domain Is Listed On Your Account
To add a domain to your Office 365 subscription, you first need to ensure the domain is listed under your Hosted Domains section in your Blacknight Account - you can find this section in your account as follows:
Home >> Hosted Domains
If the domain is not currently added, you can add the domain as per the following article - ensure you set the hosting type to None during the process:
Now Add Your Domain To Office 365
Make sure you select the Office 365 subscription you intend to work on - see image below.
Once you have selected the subscription, you can then click on the menu tab Microsoft Office 365 or Manage (under the Microsoft Office 365 section).
You will then be greeted with the screen as below - here is where you would add the Domains for use with your subscription.
Upon clicking Domains, you would see a screen similar to the following image:
Click Add Domains.
On the following screen you choose the domains, and services - where available for your subscription licences, that you wish to add to the Office 365 subscription; once you are happy with your selection, click Add.
Once you add the domain, the page will refresh and then show your new entry - at this point, the domain needs to be verified by the Office 365 environment.
There are two scenarios involved in this process:
- Your domain uses our nameservers:
- The required DNS records will be added automatically, and after DNS has propagated, the system will verify that the records have been added.
- Your domain uses nameservers elsewhere:
- You will need to add the relevant DNS records to your domain, at where you control the DNS for the domain.
- You can see the relevant DNS records by clicking on the domain entry shown on screen.
Note: You can trigger a task to verify the DNS records by clicking on Verify on the domain entry:
Microsoft Ofice 365 >> Domains >> Domain Entry (Verify)
Once your domain has been verified in full, the Office 365 system will then accept email - and allow the sending of email, for your domain.
At this point, you would then be ready to add Users to the Office 365 subscription, if you have not added them already - see the following article:
