Let me be the first to say that I’m not certain where emoji domains are headed.
It’s highly unlikely that they’ll become the .com darling or widely accepted and used as a primary web presence option for businesses and personal brands.
You have to admit that emojis spice domains up a bit although not a complete replacement. In fact, I believe emojis lend themselves well to being using in print ads as short links.
That’s one of the very reasons keyword domains exist today is because we humans can’t seem to remember IP addresses.
With a decent chunk of .com domains registered, emojis just might supplement the story plot a bit more. How you ask?
