After almost two months of not providing services to customers, DomainKing.ng seems to be back in business. The indian-based web hosting company have apologized to their customers for the downtime and is currently attending to them on their Facebook Page and via their support email address.
I contacted them via email to send me the epp code of one of the suspended domains names I registered through domainking.ng and they replied almost instantly. Some of my clients WordPress sites hosted on domainking are back online too after been offline for almost two months.
Below is one of the recent updates on the DomainKing Facebook page :
Domainking.Ng Update: Website is being repaired and is not ready to receive new orders yet ,it is being propagated to a lander page,it may take time so please don’t place orders just yet,Mean while the support is still available at firstname.lastname@example.org and has not been taken down,we are resolving client issues,you are requested to not use the website for now.Please do contact support if you have issues regarding your products bought from us.
As at the time of publishing this post, the domainking.ng website which was shut down by NIRA is yet to be fully restored. Hence, domainking customers can’t sign in for now. The message on the landing page has been modified though, as it now states that the site is under repair and will be back online shortly.
I hope they’ve learnt their lesson and will be back online stronger than before.
