We have one quick site to review today and it belongs to Land Rover. Specifically, it’s an ad for the 1998 Discovery that encouraged readers to go online (or call) to receive a free book about 4×4 vehicles. And everyone likes free things!
So where is landrover.com today?
Not terribly surprising, the domain is still active as the international site for the company. Going there today takes you to a splash screen asking you to pick your region.
This is all good. It makes sense for Land Rover to hold onto a domain as simple as landrover.com. And it looks like the experience back in 1998 was not too dissimilar to what we see today. A quick search of archive.org shows that more than 20 years ago, going to landrover.com also gave you an option to pick your region.
However, the archived version of the site still doesn’t show me where I can still get a copy of that book.
