Phoenix Suns Bought ‘Beat.LA’ Website Domain Name


Perhaps thinking that a true rivalry exists between them and the Los Angeles Lakers, the Phoenix Suns have curiously purchased the domain name “Beat.LA”. Per Domain Name Wire and the LA Times: “As for the Phoenix Suns, the NBA team bought Beat.la for $5,300. GoDaddy just started a marketing push to help brand .la as the domain name for Los Angeles, even though it’s the country code domain for Laos. This is a clever domain for the Suns to drum up their rivalry. [...] Technically the ‘.la’ is a country code for Laos, but it’s somewhat of a creative loophole. The Lakers may not actually consider Phoenix a rival, but rivalries are not always a two-way street. The Suns may be able to double-up their usage on their new registration with the Clippers now a power in the Pacific Division. Phoenix is coming off of a difficult season, winning just 25 games to finish 15th in the Western Conference. The ‘beat.la’ registration may be more of a long-term investment.”

    So Sarver wastes money on stupid domain names but he trades draft picks for cash instead of picking up some young talent. Please sell the team.

    We’ve lost everyone’s respect it seems. Now teams as bad as the Suns believe we suck as much as they do and think they have a rivalry with us. Wow. As a Lakers fan I feel kinda insulted.
