You can add your own custom domain name to Office 365 and use it to personalize user names, email addresses, and websites. Before you can use the custom domain, you have to prove that you own it by creating a special DNS record. After you set up the record, we’ll run a query to verify that the record exists, and you’ll be ready to go.
Before you start, make sure you’re ready:

If you know that your organization already owns a domain, but you’re not the person who set it up, follow the steps in this article to find your domain registrar or DNS hosting provider.
Follow the steps in I can’t add or verify my domain and get the instructions for your registrar. The record that you have to add is shown in the admin portal. You have two choices: create a TXT record or create an MX record. Some registrars don’t support TXT records, so you’ll create the MX record instead. These records are used only to prove that you own the domain and don’t redirect your mail or any other services.

Please show a question about if your domain has been registered for over 72 hours but Office 365 still has not completed verification.
I agree with Joe Malloy. What happens after 72 hours when the entire Internet is looking to ns1.microsoftonline.com for answers for your business and ns1 responds with I don't know the man or his business. Can't take your email. Then what do you do.
I have a huge problem finding out who owns a account. I need to set up a DNS and I found out that my doamin is already taken by another account?
How can I find the owner or contact the owner of tsystems4.onmicrosoft.com ?
Kind regards Dag
New here and have no idea how to set up anything. Technical instructions slays me and need help for Dummies. Domain is purchased but how do I connect for email? Can I set it up to work with gmail profiles? and how? We don't use Outlook.
