Already own a domain through Hover? 

Great! With Pro, you can bring your Hover domain to and connect it to your page in just 5 simple steps.

Step 1

Log in to your Hover account at If you're already logged in, simply click on "YOUR ACCOUNT" in the upper right corner and then click on "DOMAINS."  



Step 2

Next to your domain, you'll see a list of words related to your domain. Click on "DNS." 


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 under "IP ADDRESS."  (Copy and paste that number just as it is - be sure there are no extra periods at the end). 

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! 


Your host records should look similar to the image below but with your domain in the CNAME Record Value.


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.

Step 3

Head back to your page to check to make sure everything's connected properly.


Step 4

You're all set! Go to your new domain and check out how beautiful your new page is. Just a reminder that your domain may take up to 48 hours to fully connect.
