Magnesium Oxide (MgO) has a higher melting point than Sodium Chloride (NaCl) which is around 2,800 degrees Celcius. This is because its Mg2+ and O2- ions have a greater number of charges, and so form stronger ionic bonds, than the Na+ and Cl– ions in Sodium Chloride.

Dear student 
The ionic bonding is stronger than in sodium chloride because this time you have 2+ ions attracting 2- ions. The greater the charge, the greater the attraction. The formula of magnesium oxide is MgO.
Good Luck
