Setup Hotmail on your own domain

Set Up Windows Live on your Domain

So, my very first post :D

Lets say you’ve got a custom domain. Apart from setting up your own website on it, there are many more things you can do with it.

Yes, you can use Hotmail, Messenger, and most of the Windows Live services on your own domain, Follow the steps given and its easy :)

What you need to have ?

1) A Domain, obviously :P

2) You also need to get Hosting for this. If you don’ have hosting already, you can go to XetiHost (Completely Free Host) or Host4Post (A Post to Host) for free and reliable Hosting :) Or you could go to 123COM and get Professional Paid Hosting.

NOTE: Please do not enter the same data as given in the screenshots, those are just as examples :)

  • Firstly, Go here to register for Windows Live.

Enter the required details and go to the next step.

Now, In the Next Step, you can choose to Make a New Account (Preferred) or Use an Existing one.

Go to the next Step.

Create the account and you’ll be redirected to the Live Admin Section.Accept the TOS, and go to the next step.

Ok, Now you are redirected to the Main Admin Panel.

As you can see, there are 3-4 options, Proving Ownership isnt necessary, but it should be done.

Now, for the Mail, Go to the Mail Set Up. You will see something like this.

Now, for doing this, you need to point your domain’s MX Servers.

Once that is done, you’ll have to log in to your Control Panel (Cpanel in most cases)

You should be able to login to it at http://cpanel.yourdomain.com/

Once you have logged in,

 

Go to the “Mail” tab and Go to the “MX Entry” option

Select the domain you want to set up mail on, and some settings will show up.

Scroll down

Now add the details from the Hotmail Site (Only Priority and MX Server to Destination) to the Fields provided in Cpanel, eg

 

Click on “Add New Record”

You are done with the Mail Settings,

Now skip the CNAME field(Not necessary)

Go to the Server Trust Part

This Step is Important as if you dont do this step, all your mail will be marked as SPAM to receiving party.

For this Go Back to your Cpanel Main Page.

Go to the Domains Tab, and go to “Advanced DNS Editor

 

Enter the details from the Hotmail Site, into your “Add a Record” in Cpanel. For eg.

 

Click on Add A record and you are done :)

Now to enable Messenger you need to Create a SRV Record, If you want to, give the details under SRV record to your Hosting Manager, and he’ll do it for you.

But a easier way is, go to Passport.Net and register, its a simpler way to do it

Explore the Windows Live Admin panel, to make the Experience more customized.

I’ll be happy to answer any queries in the comments,

Hope you find this post useful :)

    Well, I did all the steps but for some reason it keeps showing me the yellow refresh button and it keeps saying “You need to prove ownership of this domain by creating a DNS record. Use the settings below”. Like i didn’t nothing on my server. I have just did the steps now. So do i have to wait?

      Please check here for free hosting.

      Domains are not free. You can buy them here or get free subdomains : Just google co.cc, co.nr, com.co.in, etc

    How long should it take to verify your domain name. I entered all required info at GoDaddy’s DNS manager, but how long should it take for domains.live.com to recognize the changes? I’ll give it a day and check back.

    If you can provide any help on that, that would be nice.

    stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.

    If the diagnosis is correct, half the battle is won.
    It is not a painful or irritating skin problem, but it can
    often appear so. This Keratosis Pilaris help-site has great
    links to Alpha-Hydroxy acid lotions, plus much more information about manual exfoliation, and I highly recommend it.

    Each office will become more solid, the interior is
    easy to emphasize the many kinds of shelving. How can you

    as squats, extensions, curls, lat pull downs, chin ups, as well as a number of other exercises.
