    Does the secondary email address get all the same emails as the primary?  Or is it only used if Hover has an error when sending something to the primary address?

    Hey there Robert, The secondary email contact on your Hover account is there as a sort of back-up.

    Hi Brian

    Thanks

    I have made that, Primary Email Contact and secondary email are correct but in the domain page appears old email and the domain is suspended,  doesn´t  accept update.

    It says xxx.com has been suspended pending verification. Check name@xxxx.net for a verification email .  name@xxxx.net  is the old email

    Thanks

    I am in the same situation Carlos is. How can I change this if the requested e-mail resend is suspended and also any change on this email send an e-mail to the old account which is suspended too?

    Hey Carlos and Andreas, 

    When you update the primary and secondary contact in your Hover account "Settings" this is only the contact between yourselves and us.  The Registration Records on the Settings page are the account default settings.  Making changes there does not update your domains, just your account.  These defaults are what will apply to new domain registrations.  These email addresses do not apply to your individual domains.  You have to update the registration records directly in order to change the email address for your domains. 

    This can be done quickly by going to the "Domains" tab, clicking on a domain and making the changes under the "Domain Details".  This is where you can update the individual domain.  Just click on the "edit" button next to the "Owner Contact", enter a new email address, and save.  Then you can resend the verification email to the new updated email address. 

    Here's our tutorial on how to update the registration records:
