Well done! You have decided to register your .ng domain.

But in case you are still confused on whether to go with a domain ending with .ng then go on reading.

I know, registering a global domain such as .com or .org for your next website or blog is probably your first choice.

But if you are starting a website or a blog for Nigerian audience then not registering a or .ng domain would be a foolish mistake. From my experience with my website, I can say that starting my website with .ng domain proved to be a great decision.

So if you are now convinced then you would probably be looking for a Domain Registrar to register your or .ng domain.

I’ll ease your search!

I was in your exact shoes when I wanted to register my first domain because most of the foreign providers like Godaddy, Namecheap don’t provide services for Nigerian domains like and .ng.

My search led me to DomainKing.NG who offered the cheapest domain and were also accredited with the Nigerian registry. So, I registered with DomainKing.NG for ₦999 and I haven’t been disappointed with my choice to go with them.

Today I register all my domains with DomainKing be it a .com or a Nigerian domain like or .ng domains.

Still confused? Then points below will make your mind.

Benefits of using .ng domain?

  • Rank Higher on Google:

Google has now started to concentrate more on local results so, registering .ng domain will be the best option in terms of SEO if your website is for Nigeria.

  • Cool names are still available :

Almost all the good global domains have been already registered. If you are just starting out, then chances are you are not going to get a domain name of your choice under .com. But if you look into country specific domain extensions such as or .ng then you can find a lot of good names.

  • Connect with your Audience:

Having a .ng domain extension will directly tell your visitors that your blog or nature of business is for Nigerians and you will be able to connect better with your audience.

Steps to register your ng domain

Step 1: Check Domain Availability:

If your domain is available then you will see it as available. Your search will show .ng for N8899 & for N999. You can then select the name that you want & also select the number of years for which you want to register it. I advise you to order it for 1 year.

Step 2:  Add a Web Hosting Plan

You will also need a web hosting account where all the files of your blog or website will be hosted. And you can get it with DomainKing. Their hosting plans start from as low as N300/mo & come with a free domain.
