name.com doesn't have an easy-to-access API, but at least their HTML is decently well structured enough that I could get my data using a sprinkling of jQuery:

var domains = [];

$('.main-table tr').each(function (i, tr) {
  var $tds = $(tr).find('td');
  var domain = {};

  if (8 !== $tds.length) {
    return;
  }

  domain.type = $($tds[1]).text();
  domain.host = $($tds[2]).text();
  domain.answer = $($tds[3]).text();
  domain.ttl = $($tds[4]).text();
  domain.priority = $($tds[5]).text();
  domain.created = $($tds[6]).text();

  domains.push(domain);
});

JSON.stringify(domains, null, '  ');

Here's what you do

You go to https://www.name.com/account/domain/details/#dns.

For example, mine is https://www.name.com/account/domain/details/coolaj86.com#dns

If you haven't been signed in, you'll be prompted for your credentials.

Now open the Chrome JavaScript Console

(Menu Button) => More tools => JavaScript Console

Then paste the entirely of the script above and hit enter.

Viola, your DNS records as JSON!
