How you can get a free subscription of O365 ?
Ans : At first create a hotmail or outlook email ID . To create a new outlook ID follow this link NEW OUTLOOK .
Why we need a hotmail ID to create a office 365 subscription ?
While you will try to create a subscription you have to go through this page where you have to provide all your details . Here without providing e-mail ID you can not proceed to next step .
What is difference between “email@example.com” and “firstname.lastname@example.org” ?
email@example.com is a hotmail mail id that has been used to create a office365 subscription where “dheeraj” is the super user name and “sbinfy1.onmicrosoft.com” is the default domain name . This name is uqnic across the globe . After creating a subscription with default domain you can add your custom domain in office365 and you can work with that .
Hope you have created your new outlook ID and you have also created a new O365 subscription . Now open portal.office.com and play with your subscription .
User or Identities in O365 ?
First user that you have created or got at the time of subscription creation “firstname.lastname@example.org” that user is global user or admin . Now you can create new user to admin for your O365 . User will use o365 subscription and admin people will manage them .
There are three kind of user that you create for O365 .

Now let’s talk about Roles office365 :
User : Who will enjoy the benifit of O365 .
Global Administrator : Accesses all administrative features in the Office 365 suite of services in your plan, including Skype for Business. By default the person who signs up to buy Office 365 becomes a global admin.
Global admins are the only admins who can assign other admin roles. You can have more than one global admin in your organization. As a best practice we recommend that only a few people in your company have this role. It reduces the risk to your business.

Us of Custom Domain and adding Custom Domain :
After creating a subscription with default domain we need to add custom domain so that we can get “firstname.lastname@example.org” . Here is the process to add custom domain . Office 365 use TXT and MX record of your DNS server to verify your domain .
When you will be with this process . O365 will give two record to you and you have to record those record in your Public DNS server . Guys do not get confused in verifying domain name process .
While you will do the practical you will borrow a domain name from “*.o365ready.com” and you have to create a DNS zone in your practice server .
DNS : Domain Naming Service , this is a service you can find in server operating system helps to resolve Domain Name .
