As one of the largest Auctioneers in the Southern Hemisphere, Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers expect the highly sought after elections.com to receive bids from people connected with both the Democratic and Republican parties however have also received interest from major media and social platforms.

One of the most anticipated search terms in the world this year is set to be ‘elections’; so, it is no wonder that this domain name is expected to sell for a considerable amount. Considering $14.4 billion was spent by candidates in the 2020 U.S. Election, there should be enough left in the budget for a domain name. 

“This could potentially be one of America’s most in demand domain names right now as we approach the 2024 Presidential Election,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers.

“Perhaps we might see Mr Biden’s or Mr Trump’s campaign teams compete for the domain to include it as part of their marketing leading up to the 2024 November election, or perhaps major media outlets or influential online leaders such as Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg,” continued Mr. Hames.

Forbes states that domain name registration plays a huge part in political campaigns, and with more than 168 million registered voters across the U.S. many who are expected to be searching and using the term #election across Google and X throughout 2024, a serious political campaign or platform would find this domain very attractive.

Some of the most expensive recently sold domain names include voice.com selling for $30 million in 2019, Insurance.com sold for $35.6 million in 2020 and connect.com sold for $10 million in 2022 proving significant domain names have investable qualities.

Enquiries for domains in such demand as these include mainstream media companies, high level business operators, political party campaigners and influential celebrities or investors.
