Porsche Latin America, Inc. 27 June, 2004 4. Domain Registration Suggestion 4.1 Porsche Latin America recommends to register individual dealer domains ! Domain: A domain is a certain internet address like www.porsche.com or www.google.com Where can I register a domain? At a local Internet Service provider/ Internet Hosting Agency What does it cost? Depends on your hosting agency you select. Usually between $5 and 10$ a month You have a website but it isnt up to date? Replace your site with your new PLAs importers page ! Website is cool, but you do not want to spend efforts or time for it ? Just register a domain. Then you forward it to your new Importers website and you are done ! Additionally you can provide all of your employees an individual e-mail address email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org What is in it for the Importer ? If you do not have a own dealer webpage right now, or you have individual webpage for your dealership you could register a Domain (like above) and link it directly to the dealership page provided by Porsche Latin America. Then you would have all Porsche company information, all models, everything accessible on your domain which you could provide to your clients. We recommend following the Domain structure www.porsche-yourcityname.com

Domain Registration Suggestion Domain Forwarding – How it will work 1.A user types in your domain address. 2.He will be directly linked to your individual Porsche Importers page from which he has all model, company and special information from PLA and PAG just in time!
