How to retrieve a list of the existing domain folders

Domain folders are virtual folders associated with your domain names that help you categorize and organize your domains. Using folders, you can stay organized and make certain changes to many domains at once.

You can retrieve the list of the existing domain folders by using the API request below. During the registration of a new domain, you can automatically put this domain in a specific folder by adding the tag domain:folderid to your domain:create request.
