NiRA's model of Operation
NiRA operates the 3R (Registry,Registrar,Registrant) model of operation. It does not register domains directly for Registrants (end users).
Domain registration information is maintained by the domain name registry, which contracts registrars to provide registration services to the public. An end user selects a registrar to provide the registration service, and that registrar registers the domain chosen by the user.
Become a NiRA Accredited Registrar
Registrars are the organizations that register and manage .ng domains for Registrants. They are the main points of contact for .ng domain registration. Applications are received from organisations that are interested in becoming NiRA Accredited Registrars. NiRA does not currently limit the number of Accredited Registrars.
