Microsoft Office Live is not an online version of Microsoft Office. It’s a complete web solution for individuals and small businesses. It includes domain-name registration, web hosting, built-in web-design tools, custom domain e-mail accounts—such as [email protected]— and a few other knickknacks to boot.
