Update to Hover's default A record

Hover has updated the default IP address for its A record. The new IP address is 216.40.34.41.

Resetting the DNS with the Bulk edit tool will automatically populate the new default A records, or they can be updated manually.

Viewing your current A record

Updating your A record with the Bulk edit tool

You can reset your DNS settings by using Hover's Bulk edit tool. This will automatically populate the correct DNS information, allowing your domain forwarding to function.
Note: Before using the Bulk edit tool to update your A records, ensure you're not using third-party A records that your other records may depend on.

  1. Within your domain's DNS tab, select the Bulk edit drop-down menu followed by Reset DNS. BulkEditReset.jpg
  2. You will now see the IP address reflected in your A record.
