    Has anyone here ever heard of dot la (.la) or own a .la domain name? Apparently is the domain extension for Los Angeles, one of the very few cities to have their own domain extension

    I've never ever heard of a LA extension, I don't think cities should have their own extension, I'd rather stick to the ones we already have (eg. com, net, eu etc..)

    I will not pay a fraction of that. They seem to be using the .tv model of domain name pricing, the price of domains are not fixed, its based on how desirable the domain name is.

    I wouldn't, no wonder mine was relatively cheap, I was having a look at "hahaha.la" and it was quite cheap, but no way I would pay $10k a year in order to get that domain. If it was a .COM it would be different.

    Most likely they just registered most of the popular names themselves and looking for suckers now: girls.la - 50K, escort.la - 50K

    I guess this industry can afford such prices...:coolv:

    UK.LA in the mean while you may want to forward it to UKWEBMASTERWORLD, it would be easier to access the site, uk.la :)

    Seems like many two word domains are purchased -- that's weird. I just looked up "ZX.LA" and it's already purchased, however I found XZ.LA available for 150$, not very pricey for a two letter domain is it :)

    Temi, what is your experience in hosting and using .LA domain? Is it easy to configure Godaddy hosting account for .LA domain?

    BTW, Your UK.LA is simply simple and superb.

    Thanks.
