Web hosting provider GoDaddy and Microsoft have announced a long-term strategic partnership to offer Microsoft Office 365 as GoDaddy’s exclusive core business-class email and productivity service to its small-business customers. As part of the agreement, Microsoft created a unique offering of domain-based email and storage for GoDaddy.
The strategic agreement between Microsoft and GoDaddy provides small businesses with seamless access to professional email connected to their domain names, cloud storage and a full suite of Microsoft productivity solutions.
