hover.com Review Conclusion
hover.com as a domain name registrar, keeps it very simple and to the point. It being a sister company of Tucows Inc., I expected the total price of the domain name along with the privacy to be no more than $10-$11. But the current pricing disappoints me as the total price is a bit more than expected.
The math is, on an average you will end up spending $2-$3 more on purchase of every domain name. For example, if you order 10 domains, you are looking at spending an extra $20-$30/yr. This is a lot better when compared to other domain name registrars who charge you extra $100+ an year for 10 domain names. But still I am not fully satisfied about the price.
Verdict on hover.com as Domain Name Registrar
I RECOMMEND hover.com if you plan to buy just one domain name or two. I DO NOT RECOMMEND hover.com if you plan to buy multiple domains as you save less on bulk order.
