Need a generic domain name? Read this important piece of information!
We advise you to place the order, but do bear in mind the following:
The Nigerian domain authority is publishi.ng a list of reserved, banned or premium domain names.
Therefore, if you are planni.ng to obtain a generic or premium domain name, such as for instance cars.ng or bloggi.ng, then please note that we may not be able to complete the order, since such domains are likely to appear on the list.
But we encourage you to place the order. As part of the application process, we will merely verify your credit card. Your card will not be charged until we know that the order can be successfully fulfilled.
The .NG TLD is unrestricted. Registrants do not need to have a company, address or contacts based in Nigeria.
