Connecting your Hover domain
Already own a domain through Hover?
Great! With about.me Pro, you can bring your Hover domain to about.me and connect it to your about.me page in just 5 simple steps.
Log in to your Hover account at hover.com. If you're already logged in, simply click on "YOUR ACCOUNT" in the upper right corner and click on "DOMAINS."
In your DNS settings, you'll see several records already there. Here's where things can get a little bit tricky, so follow along with the example below and make sure all of your values match what you see in the recording.
A. Delete the first A Record with * under "Host."
B. For the second A Record with @ under "Host," click "EDIT" on the right and copy & paste 126.96.36.199 under "IP ADDRESS." (Copy and paste that number just as it is -- be sure there are no extra periods
C. Click the "ADD A RECORD" button directly under your domain. Change the "Type" to "C NAME," type "www" for the Host Name and type in your Hover domain for the "Target Name." -- double check your spelling!
How your Host Records should look 👇 but with your domain in the CNAME Record Value -- simpleprofessionalpage.club is mine 😉
If you see an MX record like in the recording above, you probably signed up for email as well. Just make sure you don't see any other A Records or CNAME Records!
Head back to your about.me page to check to make sure everything's connected properly.
You're all set to go! Go to your new domain and check out how beautiful your new page is 😎If it's not working yet, go eat a delicious sandwich, take a walk, pet your dog, and then come back 😉 Just a reminder that your domain may take up to 48 hours to fully connect.
