Hover Updates

Notes from the Product Manager for March, 2014

Volume discounts: a megaphone and a microphone to show this is an announcement

March supposedly comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. I can’t confirm that, but I can tell you it’s still too cold at Hover HQ in Toronto, Canada, and winter may never end. Please send warm if you can spare some.

Send warm!

But enough complaining about the weather. Despite the never-ending winter, we managed to get a lot of stuff done this month.

More new TLDs

We added another few batches of new TLDs. These are all part of the long list of top-level domains that ICANN has approved. We’ll continue to add a half-dozen or more new extensions every week as more and more come online. You’ll see these new TLDs if you do a domain search, or you can have a look at the pricing page for a complete list of the extensions we offer.

Better domain search

Our domain search wasn’t doing a great job as we added more of these TLDs and so we undertook some work to improve performance there. We’re also working on a complete rethink of search and how we display search results. That’s a big pile of work and so while you might notice some improvements in the quality of our search results, you won’t notice a huge difference in the organization or display of the results just yet.

The Little Things™

There’s always more to come!
