Domain Name Industry Development - Our Joint Responsibilities

I was excited in the course of the past week, to rub minds with one of the brains behind a motorcycle hailing service in Nigeria which is positioned to be the uber on two wheels. This is coming immediately after my interaction with the promoter of the domain name.

I am excited that many more entrepreneurs are making the .ng the domain of choice for launching their business into the Nigerian market. At the moment, with over 100,000 active .ng domain names, this is far below our target and we can not be comfortable with this number.

NiRA has been at the forefront of the development of the Domain Name Industry in Nigeria. We have made considerable progress in growing the numbers, as is evident from  the growth figures we see.  The need for all our Small and Medium Scale Enterprise (SMEs) to have online identity using .ng country code Top Level Domain (.ng ccTLD) for their websites, email communications and other online activities. The message is simple “.ng ccTLD your gateway to the global market”.

To the General public, registrants and all other Stakeholders, using the .ng domain name for your websites, emails and other online communications, keep helping to propagate the news about the usefulness of .ng domain names.

Let me use this medium to encourage you all to share your testimonies and experiences of using .ng Domain Name. You can always tag all our social media handles @niraworks for these testimonies and experiences.

I remain at your service.
