Does being a Hover Connect partner cost anything?

Nope, we offer the service for free to all partners who qualify. We see it as a win-win. You get to offer them an awesome experience and a deal on their domain(s). We get a referral.

Which types of domains will I be able to offer my customers?

Hover offers over 400 top-level domains (TLDs), from classics like .COM to niche ones like .YOGA. Ultimately, your customers can choose whatever domain they like. However, the price of a domain name depends on the TLD. Most Hover Connect partners like to be able to offer their customers free domains or special pricing. We highly encourage this approach, and we’ll work with you to determine which TLDs to highlight or offer a deal on.

What is the Hover Connect experience like for partners?

We work with you collaboratively while taking care of the heavy lifting. Here’s how it works:

  1. Together, we identify the most relevant TLDs and best discount structure for your customer base.
  2. You provide us with the DNS settings that a domain name requires to work with your service, such as a CNAME or A record.
  3. We create a co-branded domain search landing page for your customers. We’ll automatically apply the proper DNS settings to any domains purchased through this page.
  4. If you’re offering your customers a discount on their domains, you’ll connect to Hover’s simple API to automatically generate and track vouchers for your customers.
  5. You can integrate the link to the co-branded landing page into your existing registration flow or customer portal. Your service will also be displayed to all Hover customers from within their Hover account, alongside our other partners. This means that if your customer forgets to register their domain through your unique landing page, they can simply click on your logo to connect their domain to your service.

What happens if my customers have questions about their domain(s)?

Hover has them covered. Our North American support team is friendly, knowledgeable, and available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time. If they need help with or have a question about their domain name(s), we’re here.

Can my customers also buy email from Hover?

Yes, all Hover customers can create a custom email address to match their domain. We offer two mailbox sizes, 10 GB for $20/year or 1TB for $29/year.

We also offer an email product called Realnames that lets Hover customers turn their name into their email address (such as without having to buy a domain.

How do domain discounts and vouchers work?

Vouchers allow eligible Hover Connect partners to add a free domain name to their paid subscription plans. We’ll work with you to determine which discount setup is best for your customers: a free, one-year domain registration, a discount on select top-level domains, or a combination of these options.

A member of our team will walk you through the details in our initial call.
