Although the .la domain is officially assigned to the country of Laos, it has also been rented out to some businesses in the state of Louisiana and the city of Los Angeles. No official or unofficial association exists between the .la domain and any government in the United States (see .gov and .org).
The .la domain is also used for domain hacks in the French language and the Chinese language. là means "there" in French and in Italian, and in other Romance languages; "啦" (pinyin: la) is a common modal word at the end of a sentence or a phrase in Mandarin Chinese and Cantonese.
Intel Latin America uses intel.la.
The Digital Public Library of America uses dp.la.
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. LA Names and CentralNic, Ltd. completed the transfer of the .la domain name to the CentralNic system in 2007. Cabel Sasser of Panic created "Poopla" (xn--ls8h.la), "The Worlds First Emoji Domain" on April 13, 2011.
