Office 365 (SharePoint online): tenant vs. Domain (DNS) name

  • Excerpt from this Post:

When you create a tenant for your organization, we will then register two different DNS entries by default.  Let’s assume the tenant name we are picking is guyinacube.  The two DNS entries that will be created are the following.


My tenant name is guyinacube.  The default domain for the Tenant will be  Any users I add at this point will have a login/email address of if I do nothing else.

There is no cost to having a Tenant itself.  The cost comes in with whatever subscriptions you have for your Tenant and the number of licenses you are paying for.  This may be O365 Subscription, SharePoint Online, Exchange, Power BI, etc…

  • Excerpt from this Post:

Why do I have an “” domain?

Office 365 creates a domain for you, like, when you sign up with the service. The user ID that you create when you sign up includes the domain, like

If you want to have your email look like buy the domain or just follow the steps in Add your users and domain to Office 365 if you own it already.

  • You can’t rename the onmicrosoft domain after sign-up. For example, if the initial domain you chose was, you can’t change it to be To use a different domain, you’d have to start a new subscription with Office 365.
  • You can’t rename your team site URL. Your team site URL is based on your domain name, and because of the way SharePoint Online architecture works, unfortunately you can’t rename the team site.
  • You can’t remove your onmicrosoft domain. Office 365 needs to keep it around because it’s used behind the scenes for your subscription. But you don’t have to use the domain yourself after you’ve added a custom domain.

You can keep using the initial domain even after you add your domain. It still works for email and other services, so it’s your choice.

SharePoint Team Site vs. OneDrive for Business

This post give an answer:

OneDrive for Business is meant to be your “me” place at the office. Basically, if you’re trying to compare it to your File Shares, it could be thought as the new “Home Folders” for users or the new “My Documents”.

SharePoint Team Site is meant to be the “We” part of the work for you and your team. In this location, the file isn’t owned or associated to one user, but rather the team itself or the Team Site if you will.

SharePoint Online: NT Authority\Authenticated Users

This answer comes from this post:

All Users (windows) and All Users (membership) are not valid for use in SharePoint Online?
Yes, in SharePoint Online, we use Everyone or Everyone except external users.

Does Everyone except external users include users who are present in Office 365 but do not have a license?
No. The Everyone except external users group includes the users who have been assigned SharePoint Online licenses. The Everyone group includes internal licensed users or external users from external sharing.
Note: External users are the users outside of your tenant. They may from other Office 365 tenants or just the users with Microsoft accounts.
