👋🏼 👴🏼 Old man emoji domain in expiring auction with 1 bid…

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.

But I’m not certain of the auction final purchase price. New owner(s) may have purchased at $10, or waited and purchased at the final price of $5 (doesn’t include one-year renewal fee).

In addition, there were two more emoji domains approaching their auction dates: ⚰️👻.ws and 👴🏼.ws.

The first emoji domain, ⚰️👻.ws, did not receive any bids and has a $10 BIN price (doesn’t include one-year renewal fee).

It’s interesting to me that this emoji domain didn’t capture a single bid, especially knowing that Halloween is fast approaching.

Although I consider this emoji to be seasonal, it could easily present a pop-up Halloween costume store or app.

For now, we’ll have to keep our eyes on it for the next couple of days to see if it too will be purchased and parked, developed or flipped.

The second emoji domain, 👴🏼.ws, is likely to catch the eye of many as it’s expiring auction ends today at 3:39 PM CST, and currently has 1 bidder at $12.

This auction is interesting to me because it’s an emoji domain that uses a skin tone. To be exact, 👴🏼.ws uses the medium-light skin tone, also known as Cream White Skin Tone.

And this same emoji domain is not to be confused with its default emoji (see image below): older man.

Emoji old man

I’ll be watching this emoji domain auction as I’m certain others will too. I doubt it’ll fetch a price over $100 due to it being a skin-tone emoji domain, but you never know…

But should a bidding war break out or the bid price goes higher than your budget, then you may want to consider registering the .to extension, which caught fire last week.

Yes, 👴🏼.to is available at the time of this writing as are other skin tones.

For now, all eyes are on 👴🏼.ws auction. That’s all for now…
