We launched our new API

The Name.com API v4 is here

We recently launched Name.com API v4, a fully RESTful API for managing domains, DNS records, email forwarding, and more. www.name.com/api_about

We're really proud of the new API, and we can't wait for our developer customers to check it out. Whether you're reselling domains or just streamlining your personal domain management, it's our most powerful API yet.

You can watch the video above to get an overview from Name.com Engineer Pat Ramsey, or you can check out the full documentation here.

What do you love above the web?

We kinda love the internet.
OK, maybe that's stating the obvious. We're an online company, after all. But we love having so much stuff right at our fingertips, whether it's a platform for a new business idea or just a funny cat video.

We gathered up some of our Name.com colleagues to discuss our favorite things about the web, and we want you to join. Watch the video, and then Tweet with the hashtag #TheWebIsAwesomeBecause to tell us what you love about the interwebs.

Domains just for Non-Governmental Organizations
Non-Governmental Organizations now have even more options for their domain names, thanks to .NGO and .ONG. They're bundled together, so if you register a .NGO, the matching .ONG is included free of charge (and vice versa).

Still one of the greats: .ORG
The choices for domain names keep expanding, but you can't forget the classics. .ORG remains an awesome choice for non-profits, organizations, clubs, and more. It's instantly recognizable, and has been the choice for non-profits for decades.

Your November promo code is filled with cheesy goodness
