Domain forwarding

Our forwarding tool will allow you to forward your domain name to any web address. The domain will need to use Hover nameservers and also point to Hover's IP address for our forwarding tool to function.

Note: DNS changes can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate. If DNS changes were made, please allow up to 24 hours.

Setting up domain forwarding

  1. Sign in to your Hover Control Panel.
    Note: The control panel will take you to a list of your domains if you have multiple. Click the domain name from the list to be taken to its overview page.

  2. On the domain's overview page, ensure it uses Hover nameservers, ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com.
    Note: Changing nameservers may disrupt any third party website or email hosting services connected to the domain.

HTTPS forwarding

Although our forwarding tool can forward to any web address, it will not function for https://yourdomain.com.

This is an HTTPS URL and is not included with the domain name. You can obtain the HTTPS URL for your domain by installing an SSL certificate through the domain’s web hosting provider.

Note: Hover does not offer web hosting, so this can not be obtained from us.

Hover’s forwarding tool will allow you to forward the following variations of your domain:
  • http://yourdomain.com
  • http://www.yourdomain.com
  • yourdomain.com
  • www.yourdomain.com
