Office 365 from GoDaddy Help

Verify my HostGator domain ownership

To set up your Office 365 email address with a domain at HostGator, you'll need to change your HostGator DNS settings twice. Once with a TXT verification record to verify your domain ownership, and a second time with the rest of your Office 365 DNS details to set your mail destination.

The TXT record value that you need to create is in your Office 365 account. If you need to sign back in, select Help me fix this.

  1. Sign in to your HostGator cPanel.
  2. In the Domains section, select Advanced DNS Zone Editor.
  3. In Add a Record section, enter the following:
    • Name: @
    • TTL: 7200
    • Type: TXT
    • Address: The TXT value we show in your Office 365 account.
  4. Select Add Record.

Contact HostGator customer support at 1 (866) 964-2867 if you need additional help.
