Nigerian ccTLD registry NiRA has lopped about 40% off the price of .ng domain names, bringing them down to a level where they are .com-competitive.
The price for a second-level name has come down to a reported NGN 5,500, which works out to about $13 a year.
.ng currently has about 178,000 domains under management, which is pretty low for a nation of some 206 million people.
The move is in line with the Nigerian government’s digital economy policy, according to NiRA.
