Company Name to Domain API

Clearbit's Name to Domain API takes a company name and returns their website domain and logo. It's free, up to 50k requests a month. The only requirement is a free Clearbit account.

At Clearbit, we believe that domain name is the new company identifier, and require a domain name to kick off our enrichment process. Unlike company names, there can only be one domain name.

Take for example, Dove. Dove skin care and Dove chocolates are both huge brands but only one can hold the dove.com domain.

There's a number of reasons why domain name makes a great identifier: it's unique, it's non-proprietary, it resolves (or doesn't), and is the best way to map a company's online presence. Additionally, almost every business in the world now has a website.

From name to domain

We've added support for Name To Domain to all of our official bindings, so if you're using Ruby, Python, Node, or Go you just need to update your client and you're good to go.

We've also added support to our beta Zapier integration, so if you're not a coder that's a great way of getting started.

Otherwise, the REST API looks like this:

curl https://company.clearbit.com/v1/domains/find?name=Segment -u CLEARBIT_KEY:
  {
    "name": "Segment",
    "domain": "segment.com",
    "logo": "https://logo.clearbit.com/segment.com"
  }

Disclaimer: company names are not unique, and therefore there's going to be some inherent inaccuracy with the data returned from this API. We try to do an exact match and return the relevant company, but it might not always be accurate.

Why use the Name to Domain API?

Many companies have large existing datasets in their CRM, marketing automation system, or user database that don't have a domain name associated with each record. Often there is just a company name, and without a unique domain name, it can be difficult to enrich that record.

The Company Name to Domain API now lets our customers bridge that gap.
