Why choose a .la domain?
Whether you’re located in Laos or Los Angeles, .la is the place to be. While .la is officially the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Southeast Asian country of Laos, .la domain names can be registered by anyone in the world, including foreign businesses. This means that .la isn't location-specific and works for a variety of industries (think tequi.la, umbrel.la, or formu.la). The sky is the limit with a .la TLD!
.la facts, stats & history
Join thousands of businesses and creators by registering a .la domain. .la was first introduced 1996 as a ccTLD for Laos, but today, it's mainly marketed as a domain hack for businesses in Los Angeles, Louisiana, or Latin America, and businesses with names that end in 'la' (mzl.la and ts.la for example). Since 2002, .la has been operated by LANIC, a sponsoring organization representing the Lao government.
