Whois Privacy (where supported) is included with every domain registered with Hover for no extra charge. You can add email addresses for the domain by clicking on Show Email Options, mailboxes can be purchased and created after registration also.

6. On the checkout page, select Create an account and enter your first and last name, email address, desired username, and password. Click the Create Account button to proceed.

Alternatively, if you already have a Hover account, select Sign in to an existing account then sign in with your username and password.

7. All registered domain names require a registration record. You can register the domain under the name of an individual or an organization. Your domain's registration record can be different from your billing information. Fill in the appropriate fields and click Continue.

Note: If you are not an organization, you can enter your first and last name in the Organization field. If you are registering this domain for an organization be sure the organization name is more than four (4) characters in length. Leaving the organization field empty will lead to registration problems.

6. Because you are already signed in, you will see your Domain Default information applied to the Registration Info, and the Billing Info on file will already be applied to your order. If you need to edit either piece of info, use the Edit options to the right.sign_in_submit_order.png

Once this info is correct, click to put a checkmark next to I have read and agree to the Terms of Service, and then click Submit Order.
