Best Way to Combine Microsoft 365 Hosted Email and Godaddy Webhosting

I'd like to use Godaddy's Webbuilder hosting and Microsoft Hosted Exchange Server. Both say they need to host the dns to work. I don't see why this should be. Shouldn't I be able to route whatever I want wherever I want regardless of where the dns is hosted, assuming I get the records set the way i want?

Kinda defeats the whole cloud thing if  you have to use the services of whoever is hosting your dns records.

Any suggestions? Anyone doing this already?

Thanks.

They don't all need to host the DNS. You can certainly operate Office365 with your own DNS and Microsoft provide instructions for that. You just need to enter the records they request, which will be MX records and some A records.

Well, I contacted GoDaddy support about it and they said, "you have to host DNS with us." And I contacted MS 365 and they said, "you have to host DNS with us."

But based on your advice, I tracked down the instructions for external web hosting on MS and followed them anyway. Just to see if it would work for Godaddy even though they told me it wouldn't. Well, they didn't specifically say that. They said I HAD TO host DNS with them.

Anywho... seems like it's working. DNS hosted with MS 365. A record set for GoDaddy website. And, thus far, all seems fine.

I'll let you know if anything changes.

Thanks.
