Microsoft 365: Setting Up Desktop Office Apps

Microsoft 365 logo

HostGator will no longer be offering Microsoft 365 products. These will be taken offline from the Customer Portal and Front-of-Site. Existing customers who purchased Microsoft Office 365 through HostGator can still manage their subscription through the Customer Portal. If you are interested in purchasing a professional email, you can sign-up for Google Workspace.


To be able to download Microsoft Office applications, you will need to have the Microsoft 365 Business Pro plan. This plan allows the Office apps to be installed on up to five devices per user.

Once you've created at least one user and logged into the Microsoft portal, you'll be able to download the Office apps. To do that, you'll need to follow these three easy steps:

  1. Click on the Install Office button.
  2. Choose Microsoft 365 apps from the dropdown.
  3. Select the apps you would like to download and follow the prompts to complete the installation.
