Partnership with NiRA

The Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA) as we all know is the Registry for .ng Internet Domain names and maintains the database of registered names under the .ng country code Top Level Domain (.ng ccTLD). We operate the 3R (Registry/Registrar/Registrant) model of operation; NiRA is the Registry, providing the infrastructure that the registrars infrastructure connect to for the domain registrations. The Registrants/Resellers connect to the Registrars’ platforms for the registration of the .ng domain names. To select a NiRA Accredited Registrar, click on the link, 

It is good to note that NiRA is a self-regulatory body and managers of the .ng natural resource. NiRA is also a stakeholder led organization with membership drawn from the DNS industry. It’s necessary for all stakeholders to collectively grow this natural resource by partnering with NiRA. One can become a NiRA Accredited registrar or become a reseller depending on the capacity of the organisation. NiRA provides training opportunities for all these categories of partners for the growth of the .ng brand.
