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. 😱
It’s Friday and I’m bringing more good news after bringing you yesterday’s release of new .WS emoji domains.
While attempting to cross-check the newly released Unicode Emoji v11 against both .WS and .TO registries, I discovered that Register.to was offering a 3-Day Only discount off their premium domain listings.
It’s certainly a good Thursday and making for a GREAT Friday should you be one of the many emoji domain investors that now own one or more of the new .WS emoji domains.
Early today I reported that the .WS registry would be releasing the long awaited .WS emoji domains for the newly released Unicode Emoji v11.
🎉 It’s a big day in the world of emoji and emoji domains! 🎉 Unicode Emoji has released the latest emoji in version 11. 🎉
Later today .WS is making emoji domains available for the most recent emoji version 11. But you’ll have to act fast to stake and make your claim for the version 11 emoji domains.
Single emoji domains, no matter the extension, are quite the hot commodity. This round brings roughly 161 new possible single emoji domains to be registered and one place to register.
What an opportunity attending NamesCon offered myself and others this year to meet and make new relationships as well as reconnect with existing relationships.
Although there’s quite a bit of content made available across varying breakout sessions, panels, and workshops, I’m sharing my thoughts about one the of workshops that caught my eye was the Optimizing Domain Management Tools Talk.
Although a great product that is thriving, simplifying, and increasing the odds of a domain investor’s portfolio realizing profitable ROI, I personally don’t use Efty but have followed the company and its product from day one.
However, Doron and team have done a stellar job providing affordable domain sales and marketing services for domain investors to manage and turnover their domain portfolios.
Efty now offering Stripe provides domain investors with instant payment collection, but at what cost and risk? 🤔
