GigaLayer after a month of pushing has got approval to conduct international transactions via MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and PayPal, making it the only Nigerian domain registration and web hosting company with the feature.
This was announced at 12th event Mobile Web West Africa 2013 on Thursday. The Mobile Web Series is designed to encourage future growth of the mobile phone sector in West Africa.
With the advent of the .ng domain, there has been a rush for it locally and in the diaspora not forgetting international markets looking to have cool domain names like job.ng or traveli.ng but the absence of international payment will have caused a problem until now.
So you can now get available domains from anywhere. The .ng domain currently goes for $93.13 (N17,900).
