Hover is a domain name registrar.


Hover was founded in July 2008 by Tucows Inc. after deciding to merge the three domain registration services they already owned, NetIdentity, It's Your Domain (IYD), and Domain Direct.[2]


Hover is using the Tucows wholesale reseller services provided by OpenSRS as its foundation. Hover has removed their automated answering system from their customer support lines so that customers only have to deal with a person rather than a machine.[3]
