PRESIDENT’S SPEECH

We have in the past organized events, participated in several initiatives and embarked on projects in a bid to create awareness and keep the .ng brand in the subconscious mind of Nigerians and the entire world. Recently, we concluded the 2019 Web Hosting conference which attracted several participants from various parts of the country. Participants were enlightened on various aspects of web hosting and domain name registration by seasoned speakers from Garanntor Nigeria Limited, TF Host Nigeria Limited and Smart Web Nigeria Limited. We are grateful to all participants, our Accredited Registrars who exhibited and facilitated the program and our sponsors; Garanntor Nigeria Limited, Smart Web Nigeria Limited, Internet Exchange Point (IXPN), Medallion Communications, NITDA, UpperLink Limited, AdNaira  and Whogohost Limited for their support.

The Domain Name System (DNS) industry has become increasingly central for many businesses on the global scene and NiRA is continuously improving engagement within the global domain name industry through various initiatives such as the yearly sponsorship of NiRA’s top performing Accredited Registrar to international conferences. One of such conferences is the just concluded 7th Africa Domain Name Systems Forum held in Gaborone, Botswana from 22nd – 24th July 2019. NiRA was ably represented at the conference with the attendance of its Accredited Registrar, Garanntor Nigeria Limited.

In all, we are very much aware that the growth in domain name registration is a collective responsibility that more Nigerians should support. We seek the support of the General Public to spread the good word about .ng and join us to make the necessary impact that will project the .ng brand and ultimately grow our economy.
