Microsoft and GoDaddy have struck a strategic partnership to offer Office 365 services.

The deal — the first of its kind — is yet another example of GoDaddy’s efforts to increase the number of business solutions it provides for its 12 million customers.

As part of the agreement, users will have access to email connected to their domain names, cloud storage and other Microsoft productivity solutions such as shared calendars and online conferencing. Plans will have different pricing, starting at $3.99.

GoDaddy is providing customer service for the offerings, said CEO Blake Irving.

“Every small business is looking for solutions in one place, so we want to be able to provide that,” said Irving in an interview. “Rather than go to a lot of different places to get these services, this is part of combining them together to make it easier for them.”
