Written by Hans-Peter Oswald

Gavin Aldred, President of LA Names, said: "There is still a massive demand for good web-addresses, and Los Angeles is probablyrepparttar most internet-savvy city on earth. For businesses operating in LA a .la address is much more relevant than a .com address because it tells a potential customer not just who you are but where you are, enabling them to find you, visit you, and buy from you. For individual citizens it's more a matter of pride to be part of this extraordinary community."

In order to provide fast, reliable and secure infrastructure and technology, LA Names is working with Dublin-based global domain name registry services provider Afilias Limited, who also provide back-end registry support for .org, .INFO and a number of other ccTLDs.
