Why .la?

Choose a .la domain name

The official geographic domain ending for Laos, the Southeast Asian country with a population of 7 million, .la will first of all be very useful if you're looking to get started in the Laotian market, or even promote your business in neighboring countries like Vietnam and Thailand. But this domain ending could also be used to represent the city of Los Angeles, Latin America, or the state of Louisiana.

The .la domain ending is an opening to the outside world

Thanks to these multiple facets, the .la domain ending offers a wide range of options to those who would create a .la domain name, with varied marketing targets in different highly populated, economically active areas of the world. That way, you can promote your business on different continents with the same domain ending, .la being available to any organization or private individual.

Step into the spotlight with a .la domain name

Easy to remember for most internet users, .la offers your site true visibility while providing a good brand image and a high ranking in search engines, whether in English, Spanish, Laotian, or any other language.
