COVID-19: NiRA cuts domain name price to boost online businesses

Nigeria’s internet domain name manager says an interim price cut will help local businesses migrate online in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA), which manages the .ng internet domain names and maintains the database of names registered in the .ng country code Top Level Domain, has flagged off price cuts in August this year which are expected to last for three months.

Mr. Muhammed Rudman, President of NiRA, belives these price cuts will make it easier for businesses online, thereby mitigate the economic effects of the pandemic.

“These are challenging times for many businesses. The changes were necessitated not only by the world’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also because of the perception that the world may go into a recession because of the economic effects of the pandemic. It is more important now than ever, that these businesses can continue to conduct their businesses as profitably as possible. This can be achieved by having a robust online presence”, he said.
