Earlier today, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that he is running for President in the 2020 US election. He will be running against a large slate of candidates in the Democratic primaries leading up to the general election:
The core values of this nation… our standing in the world… our very democracy…everything that has made America — America –is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States. #Joe2020 https://t.co/jzaQbyTEz3

Candidate Biden will be using the exact match JoeBiden.com domain name for his website. This matches his @joebiden Twittter handle.
Interestingly, back in 2013, the JoeBiden.com domain name expired and nearly went to auction. At that time, the domain name had been registered to an entity called Citizens for Biden. The domain name is now registered under privacy protection at Google’s domain registrar. The domain name has been privately registered since the middle of 2017, so it is unclear whether VP Biden acquired the domain name for his campaign or if the domain name is still registered to Citizens for Biden.
Regardless of who owns JoeBiden.com, it is fortunate for him that he is able to use his exact match domain name, especially with such an easy name to spell.
