Frequently asked questions

What is the WHOIS database?

Office 365 allows you to match your email address to your domain name for instant online credibility. It's the cornerstone of your digital identity. And by choosing Office 365, you can rest assured that if your needs grow beyond email, the Microsoft suite of products for business can scale with you, whenever you need.

How can I use the WHOIS Lookup tool?

Not a problem. You can add the domain name you own to Office 365 to create a domain-based email address.

How accurate is WHOIS data?

Desktop versions of Office suites are available as a one-time purchase and include applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. These versions of the applications are not updated, so in order to get the latest version you will need to purchase the product again when the new version becomes available. With Office 365, you never need to buy Office again, and never need to worry about the technical support. Office 365 also gives you the added benefit of being a cloud-based service so everything seamlessly works together.
