(Cloud) Tip of the Day: Advanced way to check domain availability for Office 365 and Azure


Today’s Tip…

This is an extension of a previous tip.

 

Another way to check if domain is available by copying and pasting the following URL string to a web browser:

https://login.microsoftonline.com/getuserrealm.srf?login=user@contoso.com&xml=1

Note – Replace the “bolded” part with the domain you want to check.

Review the results and really pay attention to the NameSpaceType value.

 

Scenario: If the domain does not exist in Office 365/Azure AD…

<?xml version=”1.0″?>

<RealmInfo Success=”true”>
