Give a Domain this Holiday Season!

Posted by in All About TLDs Blog Hover Product Features How-to

The holiday season is quickly approaching which means it’s crunch time for getting gifts for loved ones.

We’ve all got that reindeer sweater or DVD boxed set in our closet that failed to hold its initial allure past December 26th.

Get them something that they can actually make use of. A domain from Hover complete with a $5 mail forward is only $20.

Why does a domain name make the perfect stocking stuffer? It’s a thoughtful and personalized gift that can benefit their life in ways a knit sweater simply cannot.

For example, why not give a domain name and email forward to a new grad? A theirname.com domain is the perfect way to look great to potential employers when seeking a job.

Have a look at the post we wrote on why getting your kids a domain name is a great idea. Hey, it’s no Justin Bieber cd, but it’s an investment that will likely outlive his singing career.

Have a secret santa party to attend? Sometimes all you know about your secret santa are small bits of information such as a favorite colour or rock band. The awkwardness of trying to determine a suitable gift for someone you probably barely know is unavoidable. Grabbing theirname.com and an email address for your secret santa is a thoughtful gift that sure beats a box of chocolates or candle set any day.

And you don’t have to have a website or be a web designer to have a domain. In fact, it’s easy to create a personal page with tools like About.me or Squarespace.

Domains also work great as an ‘oops, I forgot you’ gift. Registering a domain name takes as little as 5 minutes and can be done right on your smartphone! They’ll never know any different :P

If you have a few minutes to spare, however, making a domain into a physical/unwrappable present is easy and adds a great personal touch. Type the domain name and email address out on a card and put it in a nicely wrapped box or directly in a stocking.

By going to Hover.com (and effectively skipping lines at the department stores) you can get your loved ones a gift that they’ll actually make use of. Simply register the domain under your name, and we’ll be happy to transfer ownership to the lucky recipient!

Happy Holidays!
