    EDIT: Will there ever be a day - when emoji's will replace .coms? Struck through due to poor choice of words on my part. Clickbait-ish

    OK - that's a streeeeetch. But just as every new gTLD supposedly has it's use, could there ever be .emoji trends or do the XN-- make it technically impossible at present time?

    Thinking about it a little more - it would be fun to start putting words in front of emoji's making them active URLs.

    Why does everything have to be viewed as "replacing .com"?

    No reason why TLD's can play nicely together.

    Anywhooo, until emoji domains get sanctioned by the 10 Grumpy Farts running ICANN we won't be seeing them as an extension anytime soon. We also don't need another 1500 TLD's consisting of smileys and trinkets.

    The punycoding would especially have to be fixed, it is awful enough right now let alone in an extension.

    @xn--v4h.com Any thoughts of subdomaining ☮️?

    For example:

    Find.
    ☮️.com

    Inner.
    ☮️.com

    ...or does the second . (before com) take the vanity away?

    Since you could reg something like: xn--inner-0i1c.com/ [inner(peace emoji).com]

    Might not be the proper URL for Inner☮️.com -
    I'm not experienced in emoji domains

    I think it's possible..emoji.emoji might actually have some potential. I mean it would be a single URL that can be understood in all languages. ..just two images for the entire domain. hmmm, interesting...

    I mean like WorldPeace.com can be: (obviosuly the pic of the world would be smaller and in proportion)

    Edit: When putting upload_2017-7-13_8-50-5.png into my URL. It is auto changed to upload_2017-7-13_8-50-32.png (in chrome at least)

    Something that could have an effect on this is how mobile suggestive text has changed.

    IE. When sending a text "I'm taking the dogs to the bathroom" In the midst of typing bathroom at 'Bathro' my android phone suggest the bathroom emoji as the #2 option behind the full text of 'bathroom'

    Will physical keyboard ever adapt to these predictive emoji suggestive text?

    This reminds me about some recent jokes about people talking hashtags :D There is already a funny situation with SMSs containing only smilies/emojis. If we move to emoji internet, people are gonna forget their languages and return to cave drawings.

    Lol, yeah dude.. I totally agree. At the moment even with just texting, the English language has been completley messed up... I can hardly understand a message I get from someone in their early 20's ...it's English but some weird short hand cryptic freaking message text langauge that these youngesters have invented...lol ... i'm 37 and have resorted to stop trying to hook up with women under 26...hahaha cos they seem to have some sorta phobia of using a phone to actually have a voice conversation..they insist on texting in some wierd version of English that makes me feel very old :ROFL::ROFL: and soooo much gets lots in translation...I don't know if they flirting or telling me to take a hike...hahahah

    Do you have an emoji app installed? That's probably what's going on there. I have chrome too and it simply stays at ☮

    Technically it's possible, in that *ALL* unicode can be encoded as Punycode, but it's disallowed (or rather not specifically allowed for) in RFC5892 - https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5892

    The most recent standard for International Domain Names (IDN) called IDNA2008 also specifically disallows emoji domain names and GNU "libidn2" will refuse to encode them from Unicode into Punycode.

    So you'd need to get that overturned first - also ICANN seem to be against it -https://www.icann.org/news/multimedia/2857

    Sorry to rain on your parade, please don't shoot the messenger :(

    You don't. In a keyboard you either click on the link or copy and paste. The true benefit of emojis at this time is for mobile phones. For example, you simply select emoji ☮ and .com . To me this is slightly faster, more memorable, attention getter, more emotionally connected than peace.com

    BINGO. And people spend gobs of time more engaged to their cell phone than stuck at a computer.

    Interesting assertion here. My rebuttal is Trademarks are typically word marks. The character marks (assumingly) are limited to their logo.

    (Maybe a bad example because PoopFairy.com is parked -- I wanted to use the poop emoji for this example so I search TM's for Poop)

    For now. ICANN should do what is right for consumers. If they allow these new extensions that they think add value, why would emojis which to me is much more compelling.
