Emoji Domains

What a year it’s been for emoji in general. Some of the press has been good, and some of it not so good.

About that emoji movie… Uh yeah, it’s like it never happened or shouldn’t have happened.

And as for the Emogenius Game Show, it’s creeping right along into the late night spot as each week passes, having launched at the 8PM CST, now 11 PM CST, and likely to be cancelled who be not too far on the horizon.

As for the good, there are still 6 billion emoji being sent via messages daily.  And another is we’re closing in fast this month on the one-year anniversary of GoDaddy’s emoji domain search engine: i❤.ws. Continue reading

Emoji are here to stay although many think of them as a fad, especially when regarding emoji domains.

Although not available for registration in top-level-domain extensions (TLDs) due to IDNA2008, emoji domains have found a blossoming home with a growing number of country-code TLDs.

.ws exploded on the scene with a growing number of emoji domains being registered via Jon Roig’s popular emoji domain registration engine: i❤.ws.

With over 21,000 .ws emoji domain registrations and growing daily, a number of other ccTLDs are opening up their doors to warmly receive emoji domains.

In fact, .to is another ccTLD aiming to close the emoji domain registrations gap due to Max Guerin sharing the “emoji domain engine” idea with Marc Köhlbrugge, producing 😄.to.

Achieving nearly 75% of single .to emoji domains registered in two days, I wondered whether or not other ccTLDs would toy with the idea or give strong consideration to allowing emoji domains.

After all, what ccTLD wouldn’t give serious consideration to possibly realizing a strong 5-6 figure revenue generation from a domain niche that’s heating up? Continue reading

It’s been some time since I’ve had a moment to interview a personal or company brand.

Since my most recent interview, teaching kids to code using emoji, there’s been quite a few happenings in the emoji domain space:

And those are just a few of the many emoji domain highlights. That said, today I’m fortunate enough to share with everyone my latest interview with Burton Rast, the ‘sign of the horns’ (🤘) emoji domain owner. Continue reading

It’s a while since I had a moment to post about emoji domains nearing auction end.

I’ve been quite busy with a few other projects, plus my oldest recently started soccer.

Nevertheless, I was perusing the emoji domain marketplace and discovered a few expiring emoji domains with auctions ending quite soon.

Not all are worth investing in, so do your own due diligence before pulling the trigger. Continue reading

As I headed home from the office to visit my wife and kiddos before their nap time, I checked Twitter to see a post from Konstantinos Zournas (@onlinedomaincom), owner and operator of OnlineDomain.com.

His post was in regards to the 🍋.ws emoji domain being listed in a NameJet auction.

Exactly a week ago, I identified a few emoji domains in expiring auction via GoDaddy’s aftermarket platform.

I’m not certain of the outcome of the ✎.ws (the lower-right pencil pictograph) domain.

It was last listed with buy-it-now (BIN) status of $10. Currently, it looks like someone scooped it up and parked it a via Sedo page. Continue reading
