|Type:||Open Use ccTLD|
The .la domain is an Open Use ccTLD, representing the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos). It was first marketed as a domain hack for businesses and news sites in the Los Angeles, California area in 2001. In 2013, GoDaddy made a new marketing push for .la as a Los Angeles brand identifier, resulting in a small swell of interest.
