How we created dark mode on Name.com

Name.com got a whole new look and feel a few months ago when we launched our new brand. But it wasn’t just a new coat of paint that made the site look different. The front-end team leveraged the launch of the new Name.com brand as an opportunity to do a full rebuild and architect the entire site from the ground up with fresh new templates, CSS, and clean semantic HTML. There were several things we needed to clean-up, some new tech we wanted to use, and there was another reason too:

DARK MODE.

The best domain tools in the industry? Yeah, we think so too.

2013 was a good year.  Twitter held their IPO, Apple debuted the new iPhone 5S, the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl (The Editor disagrees that this is a good thing), Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, and Name.com launched the brand new Domain Management tools. Six years ago these domain tools were cutting edge—and for the most part, they have stood the test of time.

But we knew we could do better.
