Nigeria: IP address blocked

Nigerian blogger, Emmanuel Oluwatosin’s Thought Line.., reports on the blocking of Nigeria's IP address by “Go Daddy Software” …..”The company took this decision based on a survey carried out by its fraud department, which identified Nigeria as a country where there was a high incidence of fraud. The development came to the notice of a domain registrar in Nigeria, Mr. Deji Onigbinde, who buys .com, .net, and .org domain sites here in Nigeria from the United States-based Go Daddy and resells to Nigerians who desire to own their own web pages.”
