In American Samoa, the official language is English, BUT, to my surprise, almost half the pages in the domain are in Norwegian. Why?
Well, the CCTLD is .as, and, having travelled in Sweden briefly, I knew that AB was Swedish for Company. So I asked rencke is the same was true for Norway. His answer,
AS: Yes it is, means Aktieselskab = Ltd or Inc. Same in Danish. Any Danish pages? (Probably not, since Denmark has always had more liberal domain rules than Norway.) This is probably i way through the system for Norwgian companies to have more than one domain. Really interesting.
So there you have it. Live in Norway and need another domain? Have a look at the American Samoas.

Furthermore a lot of SE's favors .dk domains to .com domains because of this.
If you want to get listed in Danish SE's - get a .dk domain. Rember Rencke having said that 70% (?) of Swedish websites are on .com domains because of the strict Swedish domain registration rules - this is certainly not the case in Denmark.
There is a small typo here in case anyone wonders. Woz means Norwegian, not English.
(In Australia they have to walk around with their heads down all the time, so all the blood rushes to the brain. That's when these things happen.)
fixed! Thanks Rencke.

No No! The real problem is that all you topside people walk around with your heads up all the time and the blood drains out!
