Happy Birthday Nigeria!

The 55th Independence Anniversary of Nigeria provides a unique opportunity for every patriotic Nigerian to introspect on what the country has achieved since its independence in 1960. It may be torturous, but the country continues to make steady progress towards National Development and Economic prosperity.
We know the potentials of the .ng brand as one of the catalysts for Nigeria’s economic development, and the NiRA Executive Board of NIRA is committed to giving this critical National resource all the care and attention needed to nurture it into the essential flag of Nigeria in the cyberspace.  Please fill your glass, and raise it, as we toast and drink to the health of our dear country. To Nigeria at 55!!



Domain parking and Domain squatting have been very controversial in recent times. It is very easy to mistake them for each other. “How do you distinguish between Domain Parking and Domain Squatting?”

Domain Parking refers to the registration of an Internet domain name without that domain name being associated with any service such as e-mail or a website. It may have been registered with a view to reserving the domain name for future development and to protect against the possibility of cybersquatting by another person.
