can .tv sell them?
What hosting companies work with emoji domains? I tried using my bluehost account, but they were unable to do it, something about the double hyphens in the punycode.
I just replied to another thread. Thought I would post the tip here, also.
On twitter, to get your emoji hyperlink in your profile bio, do the below. Don't use the punycode, use the emoji...
"http://http:// .ws" (no quotes or spaces) use if you want to see the working hyperlink of 'http:// .ws' (this works in the bio & tweets, but not in your profile website hyperlink)
"http:// .ws" (no quotes or spaces) if you want to see just the working hyperlink of '.ws' (this works in the bio, tweets, and website hyperlink)
I use SiteGround, which hosts ♧.ws (and I use it to forward others emojis to other websites).
Not mine, was made by Jon Roig, who made "❤️❤️❤️.ws" aka "i❤️.ws",

I've actually been looking around myself, seeing whats been in use, and there is actually a surprising number of things, with a few very clever combinations, for example, check out (edit, it won't let me directly post the emoji. try two of these: https://emojipedia.org/mans-shoe/ , with a .ws .)
which are better stars or hearts? Your opinion?
my emojibid.com is working well too
I know that godaddy works with them (since they made that tool and all), but I've also seen emoji domains in use at name.com, can't comment on any other hosting sites unfortunately.
I suspect it may be possible, Icann do not have as much control over the cctld's
I think the ❤ is better, but it depends on the context... what is the end result?
❤Beer would be better than ⭐Beer.
Sonshi.com is ☮.com
Proudly displaying their emoji right on the front page..and they own i❤️u.ws which forwards to the same page.
wow that is a nice one @HotKey
The heart emoj URLs could be put to good use, My concern with the red emoji heart is that here are 2 emoji hearts on the iPhone keyboard, that's confusing!..
Agreed, that and different skin tones for the faces add up to a problem with this form of media
♻.net is now featured on the emoji domain marketplace https://❤❤❤.ws/marketplace/1
At the time of writing it's at $1000 EUR!!!
Not sure if it was mentioned here but there's a new emoji gameshow
for a .ws crazy times maybe its a good time ?
The .ws registry would have had many drops after the chips explosion, many people went down the .ws road only to realise the "chips" craze was over, so they may gain a little but they did lose a heap of registrations over the last year I would suggest. These are also a "gamble" but in a visual world they have some merrit
It's a .net not a .ws.
Single or double emojis .ws to me have more staying power than a text word, so renewal rates should be higher than past .ws domains. There's little heart (yeah I went there) or soul to text. Since almost everyone has a cell phone, and probably on it longer than a computer, you're looking at a huge potential with emojis. You guys are all smart investors in domain assets/property, you all might at least consider buying an option for that possibility.
I have an article on Medium looking at the things that would have to happen for emoji domains not to become more valuable.
If you fancy a coffee and a little read you can check it out
Until the critical mass get it they remain "stagnant" Hard enough telling folks what a normal domain is
You're waiting until they get to that point and buy them at that time?
I have no tintention of buying any .........at any time, cheers
Separate names with a comma.
