Microsoft adds way to buy domains via Go Daddy from within Office 365

If your business uses Office 365 and it needs to quickly purchase a new domain name, Microsoft has just announced a new way it can do that directly from the software. In a blog post, Microsoft says it has partnered with Go Daddy to add this feature to Office 365.

Microsoft states that the process is pretty simple. Just click on "Buy a domain" from within Office 365 and a wizard launches that lets users search to see if that domain is available. If it is, they can purchase that domain via Go Daddy from the wizard. The blog states:

Your Go Daddy purchase is integrated with Office 365, so completing your purchase is fast and convenient.  Once the purchase is complete, the Go Daddy DNS records are updated on your behalf for use with Office 365, so you can begin using your custom domain name for your email addresses and website right away.

If an Office 365 business has already bought a domain name from Go Daddy, they can click on the "Add a domain" option so that it can then be maintained and billed from within the software.

Go Daddy remains the largest domain name registration company. While it has gained much of its fame from its previous TV commercials featuring women in various forms of undress, Go Daddy recently launched an all new series of TV ads that center on small business and features the moves, and the splits, of 80s movie action star Jean-Claude Van Damme.
