Hover CNAME records

Introduction

To update your CNAME records with this Domain Name System (DNS) provider, first understand CNAME records and learn how to create them for G Suite in general.

Steps

  1. Sign into your account at: https://www.hover.com/login
  2. Select the domain.
  3. Go to the DNS tab.
  4. Click Add Record.
  5. Select CNAME from the pulldown menu.
  6. Enter your CNAME record using the examples listed in the CNAME record values table.

    For example, to direct mail.mydomain.com to your G Suite Gmail service , enter mail in the Hostname field and ghs.googlehosted.com in the Target Host field.
  7. Click Save.
Be aware it may take as long as 72 hours before DNS changes are propagated, depending on the time to live (TTL) that was configured for your records. Until records have been updated worldwide, you will still receive traffic to your old server.

Troubleshooting

Follow the steps within Troubleshoot CNAME records to fix your DNS setup.
