Free .com.ng, .org.ng domain name registrations to Nigerians

.ng domain name

The .NG Registry as part of its Nigeria @ 50 independence celebration is offering 50,000 .ng domain names within 50 days. According to TelecomPaper:

The Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA), manager of the Nigerian web domain .ng, has released 50,000 free domain names for Nigerians as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the country. Registration of free domains will run until 21 March. The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) will provide the funding for the project. The agency is committed to training a substantial number of Nigerian youths as web developers in readiness for an envisaged increased demand for the services of web developers with the registration of 50,000 .ng domains in the first quarter, and the target population of the .ng registry with 250,000 domains by the end of 2011. The project will be launched this month by NITDA, which will also sponsor the capacity building effort of NiRA and setting up a data centre and co-location facility to support the activation of the 250,000 domains. While the free domain name offer lasts, registrars will register domains at no cost to registrants for a period of one year. The offer of free domains is restricted to the following second level domains (SLDs): .com.ng, .org.ng, .name.ng, .mobi.ng, and .sch.ng. Recipients are expected to renew their domains at the usual fees at the expiration of the one-year period.

Grab your free .com.ng, .org.ng domain names…

If you are a website owner in Nigeria, and/or run a website that targets residents of Nigeria, you should seriously consider a .ng domain name for your website. It is the most cost-effective way to identify your website with your Nigerian target market…

Is this true or we should ignore it.

http://www.web4africa.net uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

I got the message above while trying to use the site

Thanks for this info, but how much is the renewal of this free domain. Moreover I thought it should be for ex: mydomain.ng and not mydomain.com.ng? Furthermore how can I access the free web developers training from NITDA? Thanks
