GoDaddy and Microsoft today announced a long-term strategic partnership to offer Office 365 as the Web host’s exclusive email and productivity service to its small-business customers. Office 365 from GoDaddy is available in the US and Canada for now, and will be expanding globally in the next three months.

Small businesses that have signed up with GoDaddy will receive access to professional email connected to their domain names, cloud storage, and a full suite of Microsoft productivity solutions. As part of the agreement, Microsoft says it created a unique offering of domain-based email and storage especially built with GoDaddy’s small businesses in mind.
