The .ferrari Dot Brand
Ferrari is part of the Fiat S.p.A. automotive group which includes other major brands such as Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Maserati. It is building a strategic alliance with Chrysler Group in which it has a majority stake. Fiat is integrating with Chrysler with the aim of becoming a major international automaker.
The global focus and reach of the group presents opportunities to leverage the potential of its proposed new brand TLDs such as .ferrari. The goal is to create a connected digital brand experience for all stakeholders while building the companies' reputation and service.
One of the user experience goals is to: "Unify the full breadth of products and services offered by Fiat S.p.A. under one brand umbrella..."
The .ferrari extension will provide new opportunities to deliver marketing and advertising. There will also be great opportunities for innovative marketing campaigns to meet the demands of the market.
The TLD will be able to innovate, improve general business operations and streamline user navigation to online product and service information.
The closed nature of the TLD will facilitate secure communication and interaction with stakeholders while protecting customer privacy and confidential info. This will help to "increase customer confidence and trust in conducting business online".
It will also improve business operations and satisfy future client expectations. Service content will be more personalized. Service delivery will be improved.
The .ferrari extension will be launched with a broad communications campaign. Goals will include informing the market about a commitment to security & privacy, details about ownership and aims, and details about expected benefits. "Fiat S.p.A. believes outreach and communication will be critical to building trust and confidence in the legitimacy of the TLD."
Various online crimes, cybersquatting, phishing, identity theft and other scams have proliferated on the internet.
The ferrari TLD will help to foster trust and confidence in online interaction with partners and customers. It will reduce the likelihood of visitors being "misled, believing and/or acting on erroneous, information about Fiat S.p.A., its business partners and/or its products and services presented online..."
Geographic Dot Brands
Ferrari will protect those country and territory names with geographic significance from registration within .ferrari domain names, as per the requirements in Specification 5 of the New TLD Agreement. The company will seek agreement from relevant governments for release and permission to use those names. "Registry operator will work with respective GAC representatives of the countrys relevant Ministry of Department to obtain their release of the names..."
Then, the company would be able to use domain names such as Italy.ferrari. There is no obvious reason why the Italian government for example would object to this.
