Domain NameServers (also known as DNS Servers) are used to point your domain name at your email provider, domain forwarding service, and/or web host provider. You are required to have a minimum of 2 nameservers assigned to each domain name.
Nameservers control where your domain name reaches out to when visitors access it. They also are used to point your domain name at your email provider, domain forwarding service, and/or web host provider. When you register a domain name, we set it by default to our Hover nameservers, which just display a temporary page.
Hover's nameservers are ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com.
If you intend to use Hover's "Connect" feature for simple DNS setup, you must have your domain's nameservers pointed to ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com, in order for it to work.
This tutorial will show you how to point your domain name at specific nameservers, such as name servers provided by your web host, or how to reset your nameservers to use Hover DNS if they are already pointed elsewhere.
Setting Your Nameservers to Point at Hover (in order to use Hover DNS)
If you need to point a domain name at Hover to use our DNS services, please perform the following steps:
Hover over Your Account, and then select Domains.
Click the checkbox next to the domain(s) whose nameservers you wish to change back to Hover nameservers. Then, click Edit.
Your existing nameservers will be displayed in the text boxes. Type ns1.hover.com and ns2.hover.com, or your third party nameservers, into the text boxes. Click Save.
Once saved, the changes can take up to 24 hours to propagate across the Internet.
