A couple of days ago GoDaddy launched a search engine for emoji domains.
I even bought a few as a test.
At present emoji domains are run from .ws (top tier TLD’s don’t allow them).
Whilst I’m unsure if emoji domains will take off, I find it interesting as millennials and ‘below’ regularly use emoji’s online (particularly on mobile), emoji domains offer a potentially great way of visually showcasing your brand and some new desktop tools are adapting to / loving the emoji (think of the Touch Bar on Apple’s new MacBook Pro).
Let the emoji domain purchase tidal wave commence.
