Published

on

The monthly rate of growth of the .NG domain name registrations is encouraging, topping 125,814 active domains at the end of August this year. The .NG is Nigeria’s country code top level domain (ccTLD) administered by Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA).

There were 5,161 newly registered domain names as against the 4,274 registrations done at the same time in 2017. Altogether, there were 105,508 active domain names at the third level and another 20,306 active domain names at the second level, making a total of 125,814 active domains altogether.

Meanwhile, NiRA said it would host the 2018 NiRA Bloggers Summit on October 18, 2018. It is a one-day gathering of Nigerian bloggers aimed at bringing together the blogging community and stakeholders in Nigeria to learn, network, and cultivate their presence in the online community.

NiRA president, Rev Sunday Folayan, said there would be educational sessions, brand events, influencer interactions, and sessions on monetising blogs, working with brands as a senior influencer and discussions on other topical issues such as legal impact of online payment, blogging about the society and individuals, etc.

“Considering the number of bloggers in Nigeria and the need to create a healthy atmosphere for their creativity to blossom in the blogging sphere, NiRA has identified the need to bring bloggers together to assist them with relevant strategies and opportunities to responsibly push up their value propositions to the society and maximise their talents,” he said.

Folayan added that the summit would also give potential bloggers and existing bloggers the opportunity to interact, develop and improve not only their blogging skills but also their business management skills.
