The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has released new procedures for .gov.ng domain registration.
.Gov.Ng domain name zone is preserved for government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
In the new guideline, NITDA maintains that all websites/portal of government constituents at all levels (Federal, State and Local governments) or specialized projects of government that would last for 18 months or more are required to register on .Gov.Ng zone.
Consequently, there are two ways to register a .Gov.Ng domain name.
According to the new guideline, MDAs or Government at different levels can either send a written application to (NITDA) or Nigeria internet Registration Association (NiRA) through an accredited registrar.
