The first step in setting up Microsoft 365 is verifying the domain

  • Client will send an email from Microsoft asking to set up an MX or TXT record. Set it up as a TXT record
  • Login to WHM
  • Go to 'Edit DNS Zone' and search for the clients domain
  • Scroll down to the section that says 'Add New Entries Below this Line'
  • Enter the domain provided (in the Alias or host name section on email) and be sure to include the trailing period (period after the .com)
  • The TTL section is in seconds so enter 3600 = 1 hour
  • Select TXT in the drop down and a field will appear to the right.
  • Enter the 'Destination or points to address' info from the email in the field that appears. Place it inside the quotes provided.
  • Click save
