Naming things is hard, but thankfully, we don't need to debate our company name. Here's how to refer to our platform and business.
Years ago, our company name and tagline was lowercased as a stylistic choice—github, home to social coding. Today, GitHub is always one word with a capitalized G and H. When referring to GitHub the product, company, or service, keep it simple—GitHub.
For legal purposes, refer to the business itself as GitHub, Inc.
Lastly, be sure to capitalize both the G and H to help with readability and pronunciation as distinct syllables. Don’t lowercase it, and don’t add spaces or punctuation.
