Default @ DNS record in Office 365 creation

Hi Experts,

In Office 365 when you make your nameservers the office 365 ones.

How do you add a dns record so that if someone goes to your website at a 3rd party but does not use the www, how do you do it?


if you want to go to and domain.coms website lives at you just create a A record called www and point it to in the DNS management area in office 365

That then works fine. so if someone goes to it works.

But how do you make the DNS make it so that the website is resolved if you go to

I tried creating a A record called @ but that did not work.

Any ideas??

Creating an A record for @ should work. Does it give you an error when you try to save the record, or does it just not load the webpage?

I've not been impressed with the built-in DNS manager in Office 365. I strongly prefer 3rd party DNS services like DYN.

Hi Thanks,

Strangely enough, that worked today. yet didn't the other day.

just added in a A record called @ and pointed it to the public IP of website.

maybe Office 365 DNS manager is flakey as you say.
