Here at Hover, we want to help you turn your next idea, project or business into a reality as fast as possible. We want nothing more than to help you succeed, and we want you to do it your way! This is why we created Hover Connect, a feature that gives you the freedom to choose whatever hosting service or site builder you want to use to create your website and allows you to connect your domain name with an existing page you may already have online in just a few clicks.  

Why Hover Connect?

As a domain registrar, we know that building a web presence can be complicated. But here at Hover, we’re all about freedom and choice. We offer as many extensions as we can to give you choice when looking for the perfect domain. We offer sought-after “premium” domains and empower you to make an offer on domains that are already registered by someone else. We want you to feel good about the choices you make when it comes to building your brand and we know that securing the right domain name is a small but oh-so-important part of the process. 

That’s why when it comes to where you build and host your website, we want to make it easy for you to get started and begin building your online presence. With Hover Connect we want you to have:

Hover Connect gives you peace of mind that you won’t need to transfer your domain from one provider to another. You can get your ideas started today once you buy your domain. 

Easily connect your domain to your favourite hosting or publishing tools with just a click or two!

With Hover Connect you can use your Hover domain with over 40 (and growing!) of the most popular services on the web. From hosting services and site builders like Squarespace and Shopify, to e-commerce and social media platforms like Etsy, Instagram, and Tumblr, Hover Connect is a straightforward way to point your domain to your online home. 

To use the Hover Connect feature: 

  1. In your account, find the “connect” tab in the in the upper-righthand corner of the details page 
  1. Select your desired service provider from the drop-down menu 

Depending on the specific service you’re using and their requirements, it’s as easy as simply clicking the ‘connect’ button. In some instances, you may need to provide specific confirmation info in order to verify your account. You’ll be able to view any website your Hover domain is currently connected to.

Once you’ve connected your domain to your desired website or web service, we’ll automatically add the DNS records required. No copying and pasting needed! If you change your mind, you can disconnect again at any time, in which case we’ll put the DNS records back the way they were before you hit the ‘connect’ button.
