    Was Families.com a fully developed site prior to sale? If so, the buyer really bought an Internet business, not a domain.

    I’ll check with the folks at Moniker.com, but generally speaking these auctions are for sales of domains only, with other assets sold separately, if at all.

    Jeff: A spokeswoman for Moniker.com said the sale DID include the developed Web site. The seller said the site receives 2 million page views and revenue of $12,000 to $13,000 per month.
