ITRealms Online recalls that Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA) was founded on March 23, 2005 as a stakeholder-led organisation, charged with the management of the nation’s Country Code Top Level Domain (.ng ccTLD).

NiRA’s establishment was the end of a long period of inactivity and dispute on the appropriate management of this important National Resource. Coordinated by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) as well as stakeholders within Nigeria’s Internet community participated in its formation.

The realisation of the .ng ccTLC came after nearly 12 years in, which the country code was hosted in the United States (USA) by an American Randy Bush.
