Update On The Domainking Issue. Official Statement By NIRA by bestspoke: 9:43am On Feb 28, 2017
Domainking.ng is currently having serious issues and it seems it has caught the attention of the Nigerian internet Association NIRA. you would recall that the domain has was recently taken down by them. Well it seems the host has also shut them down too. There has also been a disturbing issue about their arrest in india.

If you are currently stucked with domainking, you might have to move on and restore your back up on another host. If you have domains on domainking which needs to be transfered to other registrars, just send a mail to admin@nira.org.ng and they'll help you out.

But this below is the official statement released yesterday(27th) by NIRA.

INABILITY OF DOMAINKING.NG TO RENDER SERVICE TO ITS CLIENTS
NIGERIA INTERNET REGISTRATION ASSOCIATION

Since 8th February 2017, an India based .ng ccTLD Accredited Registrar, DomainKing.ng, has not responded to escalated support queries and emails from its clients forwarded to it by the .ng Registry. The Registry had attempted severally since then and is still trying to contact this registrar via email, telephone, their online support system, social media platforms and postal services. 24th January 2017 was the last time this Registrar responded to the Registry via email.

Failing to respond to the .ng Registry is a breach of the Registrar Agreement DomainKing.ng signed with the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NiRA). Also DomainKing.ng’s failure to respond to its registrants is in breach of the obligation a Registrar owes its registrants.

Some of the complaints via emails and phone calls from the clients of DomainKing.ng borders on payments made via the DomainKing.ng website/platform without service being rendered by DomainKing.ng

Whilst considering the plight of existing DomainKing.ng clients, the .ng Registry had taken a protective measure to ensure that the DomainKing.ng platform is temporarily not available for more Nigerians to make further payments. Further sanctions will be applied against DomainKing.ng by 2nd May 2017 should the company not reactivate/ attend/ respond to queries/ complaints raised by the registrants.

NiRA has sought legal advice and continues to consult its solicitors as events unfold on the matter.

Bearing in mind that NiRA is not a hosting company, efforts are on to attend to the various complaints on domain name management services rendered by Domainking.ng.

Great! Was pretty worried for Nigerian businesses that had their websites hosted on that platform.

My thought was to query what industry regulators were up to in salvaging the situation, and thankfully, a word from NIRA.

This act by DomainKing further puts a dent on Nigerian hosting companies...Even WhoGoHost misbehaves like they don't have a mind of their own.

All the best to the Nigerian online community.
