It’s been an exciting week for emoji domains for the right reasons, and now it appears for the wrong reason based on late Friday afternoon tweets from impacted emoji domain investors.
Early this week I reported that Global Domains International (GDI), the company behind the .WS registry, would publicly release new emoji domains for the most recent Unicode Emoji Version 11 at 1PM CST on March 1st.
Well, March 1st and 1PM CST came and went, leaving nearly 161 .WS single emoji domains registered and scattered amongst many domain investors. There was much excitement expressed throughout Twitter by emoji domain investors who were able to snag their desired .WS emoji domains.
But the excitement was short lived, coming to a screeching halt last Friday afternoon near the close of business as a few stories began to surface about emoji domains being clawed back due to a .WS system glitch that allowed multiple registrations for the same emoji domains. 😱

That’s all for today. Let’s move onto today’s domain auctions.
Here’s the next Domain Gems list of buy-it-now (BIN) and closeout domains in expired auction at GoDaddy.
It’s first come, first serve, so decide quickly and soundly. I wish you success in profitable flips, development, and sales.
Below is a compiled list of expiring emoji domain auctions. This specific auction list may not become a norm, so enjoy it while it lasts. 🙂
For expiring emoji domain auctions with bids, I’ve included emoji. For auctions without bids at the time of this writing, emoji not included, but do feel free to use PunyCoder.com (copy and paste the list).
That’s all for today. Let’s move onto today’s emoji domain auctions.
Below is a hand-picked list of quick-pick domains with NO bids. There are a few sleepers on the list worth NOT BIDDING on, and allowing to enter into buy-it-now closeout status.
Attempting to allow domains with no bids to close in auction can be a bit risky. Once domains enter buy-it-now closeout status is also risky too.
I enjoy sniping and flipping expired domains at $5 pricing (really $13 after renewing it for a year), but be wise and don’t lose out on a good domain in an attempt to wait it out.
As always do your homework and research each domain before you commit to bidding and buying.
It’s time to snap to it with today’s randomly selected domain auctions from SnapNames.com.
This randomly selected list of domains focuses primarily on keyword domains in auction.
It’s likely I’ll mix in random geo domain auction lists from time to time. I wish you the best in bidding.
