Most, if not all domain registrars force you to pay with credit card or paypal. And since paypal is not supported in Nigeria, most people find it hard purchasing a custom domain. To make matters worse, credit/debit card offered at Nigerian banks often mess up when used for some online transactions. It’s a personal experience.
However I came across a domain registrar that accepts Liberty Reserve, Alertpay and some other e-currencies apart from paypal. I’ve been with them for over a year now and I can boldly say their service is excellent.
If you’re new to Liberty Reserve, you can read my post on how to fund your liberty reserve account here in Nigeria…then go ahead and purchase your domain in Naira!
Visit gossimer.com, sign up and you’ll definitely love their service.
Purchasing a custom domain for your blog is important and I advice you to get one. It gives your blog an identity, makes it look more professinal and good for SEO. It’ll be probably be around 2000 Naira per year. I’m sure that isn’t too much.
