    The Federal Government has said that all Nigerian government websites must be hosted in Nigeria.

    The mandatory requirement for local hosting of government websites is one of the highlights of standards and guidelines on Nigerian Government Websites by National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).

    Technology Times review of the guidelines show that government institutions are also to use the domain anmes strings for their website to ensure uniformity and compliance with best practices in the domain name industry.

    “In compliance with the Government Domain Name Policy, all Government Websites must use exclusively”, the rules say.

    The relevant provision on local hosting reads that, “The above naming Policy applies to all Government Websites irrespective of where they are hosted. Also based on the extant rules as stipulated in the Regulatory Guidelines for Nigeria Content Development of 2013, all Government Services and Websites must be hosted in Standards and Guidelines for Government Websites in Nigeria.”

    The IT regulator says it is reviewing the guidelines to improve “the quality, reliability, accuracy and accessibility of online information pertaining to Government Institutions at all levels of government and to ensure consistent experience for all users.”

    So why this kind of news?
    If they want people to host their websites in the country, they have to start by providing servers or supporting people to do so.
