It was launched in 2007. It was published by KOS Media, who also publish the Kent on Sunday and Kent on Saturday weeklies for the whole of the county of Kent. The main editorial offices were in Smeeth near Ashford.
Initially Your Dover covered the Deal and Sandwich areas as well. The two towns got their own titles – Your Deal and Your Sandwich – in 2009. They were re-amalgamated into Your Dover at the end of November 2010, but resumed publication just two months later in January 2011, when the Your… series ceased print publication.
In June 2010 the Norwich-based Archant group acquired KOS Media outright, having had a minority shareholding since 2005.
It came out on Wednesdays. It ceased publication altogether in December 2012, although the website remains online and is still being updated.
