The npm blog has been discontinued.
Statement on npm‑cdn.com and npm‑js.com
An anonymous person recently registered domains that appear to be affiliated with npm, Inc., and in recent days has contacted some npm users to promote a commercial service that our users could confuse for an npm, Inc. product.
npm, Inc. is not affiliated with this individual, we do not endorse these actions, and we are taking action to protect our users and defend our intellectual property rights.
This is what we know:
A few weeks ago, an unknown party registered the domains
npm-js.com. They are hosted on DigitalOcean behind the Cloudflare CDN.
npm, Inc. is not affiliated with these domain names, which we believe are an intentional attempt to confuse npm users as to their association with npm, Inc. They are a violation of npm’s trademark policy.
The domains point to sites that run a fork of unpkg, a CDN backend written by Michael J. Jackson. Michael is an upstanding
Open Source citizen with whom we have a longstanding relationship. Unpkg is not
released under a license that would allow others to use the codebase in this
npm-js.com forks are code theft.
We have reached out to Cloudflare and DigitalOcean to shut down this abusive behavior. These companies’ processes take some time, and are still underway. As the situation unfolds, we’ll keep the community informed. If you’re not sure whether a piece of communication is really from npm, Inc., contact npm support at email@example.com for assistance.
Supporting the npm Registry and the Open Source community remains our highest priority. We’ll continue to take every possible action to support the community and help developers build amazing things.
