Thanks for the help, but finally I found the right article. And it works with a cname only. I wouldn't say that the navigation and help for office 365 are especially user friendly and easy to find.
Thanks again mchv2.0
Thanks very much but I can't get it working:
1. Namecheap tells me @ for a cname is not valid. What is that record doing anyway? Does it give office 365 access to the source address of the visitor? Does it need special characters like / or = ?
2. The result of the A record alone is a 400-bad request.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks very much!
Assuming you're using namecheap's nameservers:
The CNAME makes sure that entries with www find the site. Ask namecheap what the host should be in their system for that.
A 400 error suggests you may have the ip address wrong or formed badly.
