NiRA, Registrar Parley on half-year .NG session
On Wednesday, the 20th August 2014, I led the NiRA Executive Board of Directors (EBOD) to host our  Accredited Registrars in  a meeting   to assess the progress thus far on  the .ng domain name business in 2014.
It was necessary we share ideas on how to grow the numbers and the market for the mutual benefit of all. The parley took place at the newly renovated NiRA Office Complex at 8 Funsho Williams Avenue, Surulere, Lagos State.
Hot on the agenda was the discussion on the “Presentation by the Registrars Constituency of the Registrars Working Group”. This was a report put together by the representatives of the accredited Registrars for the progress of the .ng business in Nigeria. Amongst other highlights from the report, requests were made that the quantum of premium domain names should be reduced and that NiRA should review the cost of the domain names, as well as the request for improved communication channel. READ MORE

Some of the Registrar's information on the NiRA website is stale and needs urgent update. The secretariat will appreciate a speedy response on this.
