100, 000 Free Dot NG Domain Names in 2014
Nigeria’s ccTLD regulator, Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA), has said that it would give out 100, 000 free dot ng domain names in 2014 as part of its plan to celebrate the country’s 100 years centenary anniversary, reports ThisDay.
The move is expected to encourage Nigerians to populate and adopt the .ng domain name, which has reportedly sold about 60, 000 domain names to date, according to Mary Uduma, President of NiRA. The .ng regulator expects to increase this by 250 percent before the end of 2014 through this exercise.
It is uncertain how the domain names would be made available to interested Nigerians, but more details of the free dot ng domain names offer would be announced by the end of January and the actual commencement of the free domain name exercise would begin in February.
More details soon… Stay tuned!
