domain resource type

Represents a domain associated with the tenant.

Use domain operations to associate domains to a tenant, verify domain ownership, and configure supported services. Domain operations enable registrars to automate domain association for services such as Office 365. For example, as part of domain sign up, a registrar can enable a vanity domain for email, websites, authentication, etc.

To associate a domain with a tenant:

  1. Associate a domain with a tenant.

  2. Verify ownership of the domain. Verification records can be added to the domain through the domain registrar or DNS server configuration.

  3. Indicate the supported services you plan to use with the domain.

  4. Configure the domain for supported services. Configuration records can be added to the domain through the domain registrar or DNS server configuration.
