Verifying domain for Microsoft 365

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am hoping someone may be able to help me out here!

I need to verify my website with Microsoft, so I can access our 365 account (which is hosted under a different domain). 

Microsoft has asked me to upload a text file to the site, so that the url is as follows:


However, the closest I've managed to get is to create a blank page, create a link that links to the text file. Unfortauntely, the URL then becomes: 


I need to get rid of the /s part of the url for it to work. 301 and 302 redirects don't allow me to verify.

If anyone has managed to find a solution to this, I would be incredibly grateful!!

Thank you so much in advance.

You can't upload a txt file to your root domain (i.e. without the /s/ ).

There should be other ways to verify your domain that are possible:
