.LA (Los Angeles) domain goes global

By on May 3, 2007

Dot LA has been available as the domain name designation for Los Angeles since 2001 and is now available for everyone to register. LA Names and CentralNic, Ltd. have completed the transfer of the .LA domain name to the CentralNic system. CentralNic specializes in global specialty country code TLDs.

Dot LA registrations cost $25 per year with a minimum (2) year registration agreement. The domain is, of course, most popular in Los Angeles but reports from LA Names claim that one of .LA’s top selling registrars, Key Systems, is actually located in Germany, where domain name registrations are very popular.

CentralNic CEO Dan Schindler stated, “We’re delighted to be working with LA Names. Especially since we have recently opened our U.S. branch office in the Los Angeles area. The Dot LA domain name presents a great opportunity for businesses and other entities interested in marketing their products, ideas, or services in Los Angeles to create their own LA identity.”

LA Names CEO Raedene McGary stated, “We chose CentralNic due to their flexibility and knowledge of the domain name landscape. We are very optimistic that .LA has a great future.”

You can grab your own .LA domain at www.LA, CentralNic and various approved registrars.
