According to recent data shared by the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA), 33,572 .ng domain names were registered, renewed or transferred with the body between January and November 2015.

The figure – 33,572 – is more than the 31,542 recorded for the whole of 2014, but only marginally so. In the 2014 report, NiRA recorded 18,870 registered domains, 11,907 renewed and 765 transferred.

Guardian reports that NiRA also accredited four more domain registrars this year in addition to the 47 it had last year.

“We are hopeful that with full accreditation of more Registrars, this would provide more opportunities for creating awareness of the .ng brand,” NiRA’s President, Sunday Afolayan told Guardian.
