When signing up for Office 365, the onmicrosoft.com domain name is provided which can be used with most Office 365 services. For example, if you configure e-mail addresses for the users, they would end with @domain.onmicrosoft.com. If your company has a custom domain name, it is possible to use it instead of onmicrosoft.com domain. What steps should you take to add a custom domain from the Office 365 portal site? Choose the best option(s) from those listed below.

A: Go to Domains, click Add a domain, type the domain name, get TXT record, add TXT record to DNS, then verify it in Office 365.

C: Go to Domains, click Add a domain, get TXT record, add TXT record to DNS, verify it in Office 365, and then type the domain name.

D: Go to Domains, click Add a domain, get TXT record and verify it in DNS.

 

Explanation: When adding a custom domain to Office 365, you need to click on the Domain section in the Office 365 portal site. This section allows an administrator to add or remove a domain as well as view DNS settings and troubleshoot. To add a new domain, you click on Add a domain. The first step is to add the domain name and then confirm ownership of that name. This is done by taking the TXT record provided in Office 365 and entering it in your DNS server. Then you go back to the Office 365 portal site and click on the Done, verify now button to confirm domain ownership.
