How do I change how my DNS records are managed in Office 365?

Change DNS management to a DNS host outside Office 365

  1. Change your nameservers

    1. Sign in to the domain registrar for your domain. 

    2. Find the area on the registrar's website where you update nameserver records, and update the nameservers to point to your domain's DNS host. (The DNS host is often the domain registrar.)

  2. Follow a link to go to the domains setup wizard

    1. Sign in to Office 365 and go to the admin center

    2. Go to the Domains page

    3. Select the domain you're switching, and choose DNS Management.

  3. Choose the option to manage your domain's DNS records

    1. In the domains setup wizard, on the Set up your online services page, choose I'll manage my own DNS records, and then click Next.

    2. Add the DNS records suggested by the wizard on the Update DNS settings page to your registrars website. 

    3. After you've added the records, come back to Office 365 and click Verify.
