TrumpTV.com is on auction at Ebay with a buy it now price of $450,000.
Back in October of 2016 we did an article on TrumpTV.com and the owner wanted $3 million. Even with the price reduction it seems like an unrealistic price. In my opinion the Trump organization could have interest in acquiring but not at that price.
From the story last October:
TheWrap.com has an exclusive interview with the owner of the domain name TrumpTv.com; Hollywood entrepreneur Fernando Escovar.
Mr. Escovar told TheWrap that he bought the domain name back in 2004, and “totally forgot I owned it; Then, all of a sudden, traffic began to go crazy and I realized what was going on.”
“We’ve seen our traffic go from about 150,000 people to 1.3 million in just the last couple of weeks”
Escovar, owns several entertainment sites including FabTV.com, also has a few card-game websites.
“Trump is a term used in Bridge,” Escovar said. “I wasn’t even thinking of Donald Trump.”
Mr. Escovar went on to say “I’ve sold a bunch of domains over the years and so I know how much they’re worth” and this one is priced at $3 million.
Now in the latest press release:
Hollywood entrepreneur Fernando Escovar announced today that he is finally placing his domain TrumpTV.com up for sale.
Ironically, Escovar’s initial interest in the URL had nothing to do with the celebrity reality show host now turned President. “Trump is a term used in Bridge,” Escovar said. “I wasn’t even thinking of Donald Trump back in 2004 when I initially acquired the domain.”
Escovar, who owns and manages several entertainment sites, including FabTV.com, also has a few card-game websites. “I totally forgot I owned it,” said Escovar, “Then, suddenly, things began to go crazy.”
Escovar, who has met the GOP nominee several times during red carpet events, has not yet heard directly from Trump’s camp, but if any interest, he would be happy to have a conversation.
“I’ve sold a bunch of domains over the years and so I know how much they’re worth,” he said.
