Add or edit custom DNS records in Office 365

If Office 365 manages your DNS records, you can add custom DNS records for your domain right in Office 365. You can do this any time after you add your domain to Office 365 and switch your nameserver (NS) records to point to Office 365. You might want to add a DNS record, for example, to redirect Internet traffic for one of your domains to a website that you host with another provider.

You can edit your custom DNS records later if you need to make changes.
