.la is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Laos.
The LA Names Corporation, based in Guernsey, has gained the rights to market .la registrations, and they had used the registry services of Afilias and, formerly, the registrar services of DreamHost. However, DreamHost has discontinued registrar services as of May, 2006, and CentralNic now provides these services. CentralNic is based in the United Kingdom, while the .la domain is allocated to Laos, but the registrar site claims it to be the "official domain of the city of Los Angeles", a city that is known by the "L.A." initials. It is also often used as an unofficial domain for Liverpool, because Scousers used to call each other 'La'.
As registrations are taken directly at the second level, and many English words end with -la, this presents an opportunity for domain hacks.
Since .LA enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .LA makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .LA extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in Laos.
