I have a domain for my js project. Can I get a js.org domain and redirect it to my website?
Js.org does not allow redirecting at the time of writing. However, NEXT.js and Vue.js have created simple pages that point the users to their website. Such behaviour is also seemed to be encouraged by js.org membersRef.
Note: In the future should your domain go unused, returns a 404, etc…. js.org can remove the sub domain from you. However they will try to contact you and provide you time to get things right. Here is an issue discussing one of the domain clean-ups as it happened. This ensures that sub domain names are not reserved and ensures availability for those who need it.
