.NG Domain FAQs
How soon would the .ng domain be registered?
With exception of moderated domain extensions like .gov.ng and .edu.ng, most other .ng domain registrations go through instantly. Another exception is where the .ng registry has flagged a domain for scrutiny. Where this is the case, Web4Africa would contact the domain applicant to verify the intention for the domain name.
