Listed below are updates to the top 10 domain sales from a year ago, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. Give.com sold for $500,000
The domain is currently parked and under privacy protection. Elliot Silver had a nice story on the domain shortly after it traded hands last year, and stated that Brent Oxley, the founder of hosting company HostGator.com, purchased the domain. In the story, Mr. Oxley said in part, “I plan to create a charity that has 0% management fees and is 100% transparent.” and “There’ a lot of work to do still so we’re probably a year or two off from launch.“
2. Returns.com sold for $65,000
No site resolves, and the owner is under privacy protection. This is the first of three sales on the list from Braden Pollock this week, and he reports that the buyer was an individual in the inventory management / liquidation business. Braden’s two other sales below are Coworker.com and FareApp.com, making for a nice 6-figure week.
3. L4.com sold for $64,000

The traffic leader for the week, with its Alexa rank near 120,000. A scheduling solution, “Join the thousands of teams around the world using Float to keep track of who’s working on what and when.“
5. LRZ.com sold for $46,000
Domain is parked, and owned by an individual in China.
6. Hamilelik.com sold for $36,000
This appears to be the website for an individual doctor. The title of the Turkish-language site seems to have a few words ‘off’ in its Google translation, “Pregnancy, gynecology and about IVF Prof. Dr. Bulent has been prepared by shaving.”
7. Coworker.com sold for $27,500
A directory of co-working spaces, with an Alexa rank near 250,000. “Coworker.com is your #1 place to find and review coworking spaces around the world.

8. PiuPiu.com sold for $25,000
Even with Google Translate, I can’t tell for sure what’s happening with this Chinese-language site. A dating or match making site?
