General Advice On .com.ng And .ng Domains by RealTrump: 1:59pm On Feb 01, 2020
I would like to start a project primarily targeted at Nigerians.

1. Is there any advantage to using .com.ng as compared to .ng domains.

2. Should I just use .com domain and point my site to Nigeria

Personally, I don't think a .ng domain can justify its crazy price since I intend to register the domain for around 5 years at a go.

I would like people to elaborate on these two points especially if there are any SEO benefits.

3. Also, where is the most reliable place to register a .com.ng or a .ng domain? Not hosting o.

I hear rumors of Nigerian domain registrar stealing your domain.

Register your domain with a foreign domain company like namecheap or namesilo or perhaps godaddy.

As for the com.ng or .ng, since you are dealing with only nigeria audience then .ng would go well however, .com.ng is not bad if you do not have the capital for .ng domain. If you ask me both serve as same thing is just that one is a second tier country level domain. My last bullet, .ng look more professional from a trust and corporate perspective. If you intend to sell products of any kind or try to offer any form of services later then .ng domain would be better off.
