Digital investor Andy Booth has revealed that he has facilitated the sale of AFS.com for $2 Million.
Booth, who owns a valuable set of domain names himself including Booth.com, Amber.com, and Satoshi.com, also used to own AFS.com according to WHOIS history.
Since 2019, though, the domain has been under WHOIS privacy protection at GoDaddy until recently when the name moved to CSC, a corporate domain management service.
The news of this domain sale was teased by Booth on Twitter at the beginning of September, but the full announcement was only publicized once the sale had closed:
Can confirm the $2mm domain sale of https://t.co/09BKyGuNda has taken place.
Accenture are the buyer. Pure domain sale.

The sale of AFS.com ranks firmly in the top 10 domain sales of the year. According to NameBio, the sale would also rank as the largest non-word, publicly-disclosed three-letter .com sale of all time, beating previous incumbent Eko.com.
