Whilst it may be very attractive to get a free domain name with Office Live Small Business, many people already have their own domain name that they had planned to connect to a website at a future date.

If you want to connect your domain name with Office Live’s free 500MB of web-hosting space, we’ve written simple instructions to show how to re-direct your domain name to point at your Office Live website.

The procedure is pretty much the same for all domain registrars :

  1. Within your Office Live website, click Domain Manager, then Use your own Domain, then type in your domain name.
  2. Log into your Domain Registrar’s administration system and change the name servers to NS1.officelive.com and NS2.officelive.com
  3. Shortly afterwards, your domain name will be pointing at your Office Live website.

I’ve tested this for some of the more popular UK domain registrars such at 123-Reg, BT, Easyspace and Fasthosts. The detailed instructions are all shown in the Office Live Small Business FAQ, under the domain names section – click here (you’ll also find a short explanatory video at this link)
