Why should I buy Office 365 from GoDaddy if I already have Office on my desktop?
If you purchase our Business or Business Premium plan, you’ll get the latest version of the Office desktop applications you know and love—Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Publisher. And whenever Office is updated, you will automatically receive the latest upgrade at no additional charge so that you’re always on the current version of Office.
Our Office 365 plans give you the ability to easily and securely share and collaborate on documents using OneDrive for Business and Office Online. With Online Essentials, and Business Premium you can also create a domain-based email address and share calendars and contacts with people inside and outside of your company. Finally, unlike the Office you currently have, Office 365 from GoDaddy gives you the ability to have real-time online meetings and screen sharing using Lync.
Which desktop applications come with the Business and Business Premium plans?
This depends on which plan you choose and whether you’re using a PC or Mac. PC users who choose the Business plan can download the latest versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote and Publisher. If you choose the Business Plus plan, you get all of those programs, plus Lync. And if you’re a Mac user, you’ll receive the latest desktop versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and Outlook for either plan.1
Will the latest version of Microsoft Office work on my computer?
To use the 5 desktop downloads you get with the Business or Business Premium plan, you must be on one of the following operating systems:
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows 7
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows 8
- Mac OS X version 10.6 or later.
If you are running a different operating system, remember that you can still work online with Office Online, browser-based versions of your favorite Microsoft tools like Excel, Word or PowerPoint, which are included with the Online Essentials or Business Premium plans.
