Switch to NG logoThe Nigerian government is promoting the .NG ccTLD, encouraging the public and businesses to “switch to .NG.”

The campaign has several aims and objectives, all with the goal of encouraging more registrations of .NG domain names by Nigerians.

The campaign has the support of Google in Nigeria who are helping to promote .NG to small to medium enterprises, and in partnership with Google, MTN Business and Ecobank the campaign aims to get 250,000 public, private and individual entities using .NG domains by 2013.

The goals and objectives of the Switchto.ng campaign are to:

  • educate the public on the existence of .NG
  • provide a forum for government ministries, departments and agencies to understand the policies and procedures for registration of .gov.ng domains
  • give NiRA accredited registrars information to help them promote .NG
  • promote the use of .NG domains across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria
  • provide awareness of cybersecurity and scams.
