The current language is emoji. Emoji usage has skyrocketed in popularity as a result of the increased use of mobile internet, with users increasingly include them in conversations on social media, messaging apps, and other platforms.
Emoji domains have been around for a while, but it wasn’t until our colleagues at GoDaddy introduced a search engine for them and made it simple to register them under the.ws extension that they started to gain popularity as the newest breakout trend in domain name investment.
Our very own Michael Cyger, author of The Definite Guide to Emoji Domains, was one of the first users to begin contributing emoji domain names to the Efty platform. Since then, countless more Emoji domain names have been added to the platform, and quite quickly we saw that these stylish domains were here to stay and that we would need to put some work into making them and their owners feel totally at home at Efty.
While Emoji domain names are frequently listed on large marketplaces in hideous Punycode or cannot be listed at all (I’m looking at you, Sedo), with Efty your Emoji domains will be published in all their beauty.
Therefore, instead of the much less appealing, lengthy, and frequently confusing Punycode, which is xn--0s8hp2af4d.ws for this specific domain name, a visitor typing.ws will be greeted by a slick looking For-Sale landing page that displays your emoji domain beautifully.
Additionally, each emoji domain name you offer on your Efty-powered marketplace website (mine is here) will be displayed in the best possible light so that customers can see the potential and possibilities before clicking the Buy-It-Now button.
Additionally, we made sure that emoji (and all other internationalised domain names) were appropriately displayed across the whole Efty application as well as in all offer and purchase confirmation emails sent to you and your customer.
Make sure you add emoji domain names as Punycode when adding them to your Efty account, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Let’s hope for more sales,
