Go to the link http://www.microsoft.com/smallbusiness/products/office/microsoft-office-live/default.aspx#overview and click on the "Sign Up Free" button.

Fill out your personal information, including a valid email address, to set up your account.

Wait for the confirmation email. When you receive it, click on the link in the body of the email to confirm your account.

Log in to Microsoft Office Live and go to the Home page of your account once you have been confirmed.

Click on the link for "Get a Web address" and enter the domain name you wish to register.

Tip

  • check It will take a day or two for Microsoft to register your preferred domain name. In the meantime, you can still work on building your site with the temporary domain name they supply.
