Name.com API

Version 2 beta

Welcome to the name.com beta API page. Our API (V2) is now available for general use.

The API requires programming knowledge and you must have a way to bill your customer. Currently, the API supports a RESTFUL API. We may add other protocols in the future.

Please keep in mind that the Name.com API, in it's current state, is not for individuals looking to create an instant domain registration site. Rather, it is designed facilitate domain registration as an option or ancillary service to an existing site.

Requirements

  • A Name.com account.
  • Create and parse JSON commands and responses.
  • Send and receive JSON commands via HTTP POST and GET.
  • Billing mechanism for your customers if needed.
  • Track products created and map those to your customers.
