The report also laid emphasis on the drop in .ng domain purchases in the month of December.

According to NiRA’s report, ” December 2014 recorded a drop in the .ng domain name purchase… There was also a slight decrease in the number of domain names renewed in the same month … Interestingly, there was a remarkable increase in the transfer window. This could be traced to entrance of new registrars”.
