Windows Live Admin Center (Windows Live Custom Domains before November 2007) was a service provided by Windows Live that enabled users to have Outlook.com and all its features in their own domain names, which they had to have purchased separately from a registrar. On 11 April 2014 Microsoft deprecated the service in favor of the Office 365 software plus service program and offered Admins guidelines for migration.

Features[edit]

Email accounts provided by Admin Center are Microsoft accounts and can be used to sign into all other Windows Live ID enabled services.

One Windows Live ID can be set as the administrator and using that ID accounts can be created, modified or deleted. The administrator may also choose to allow anyone to create his or her own account in the domain via a link on the domain's web site. Administrators can choose from a web-based or Windows-based application to manage all aspects of their domain accounts.

Users with Admin Center accounts can check their emails using Outlook.com, Windows Live Mail, and Outlook.
