Query regarding internet country code

Post by tommymiranda11 on Tue Mar 15, 2011 3:58 pm

Numerous individuals are into utilizing .com domains and I understand this. If you desire to show rapidly in the Google’s results then you should apply .com. However, in a French website, that would indicate for you to utilize .Fr domain and that would assist you in ranking rapidly in Google. This is the same when you choose .cn for China. In the instance of .la, is this a country code domain? I am just concerned in discovering what this really is? Could this be the country internet code of Laos? Can anybody inform me of what this is? I am simply pondering on what this really is. I am very much thankful for your responses.
