I’m being asked every now and then about the URLs format for various services and global zones. I usually have a bunch of links bookmarked about this, but I’m pulling all information together here to make it easy for me to find it when needed.

The format of the Dynamics CRM Online Organization URL describes the data centre location. As such, the standard format is as follows:

https://OrganizationName.crm%5Bx%5D.dynamics.com

The OrganizationName is the name you have selected for your online organization. This is customizable, and is validated for uniqueness within the respective data centre.

The [x] represents a number. As of the time of this writing, this number can be anywhere between 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 or no number at all. This describes the global data centre used to host your organization. The following table maps the data centre to the URL format.
