    There aren't any official websites, but there are several sites that are generally good enough. Different library implementors have their own documentation, like Dinkumware, SGI and MSDN. There are also other reference sites such as cppreference.com that have library API information.

    The standard is the official documentation, and you can get a PDF version for about $18 (US), although it is more difficult to navigate and understand than those websites.

    Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language (3rd or special edition) is best as a reference, but there are other options as well (see the stickied book recommendations thread).

    Hmm calling C++ an 'API' gives me shivers.

    But I won't go there.

    At the top of the board you're posting in: C++ Book Recommendations.
