Emoji Domain Registration


Example Emoji Domains

As Seen In...

Emoji Domains are 100% compatible with all browsers!

Most people have no idea they can just type emoji in their address bar and go to a domain.

... and yet, here you are.

Feels pretty good, doesn't it?


You know... to be all cool and cutting edge and stuff.

How does it work?

Behind the scenes, all domains are ASCII text, even if you see the domain name displayed as an emoji.

The actual mechanics aren't that important, but the key thing to know is that the browser uses a strategy called "punycoding" to convert "i❤️" to "xn--i-7iq" behind the scenes.

Most browsers keep this process hidden... but even when it's not, your Emoji Domain will work.

When I purchase a domain, why does it go to GoDaddy?

With i❤️domains, you're not buying domains from some sketchy dude on a street corner.

Find a domain you love. Buy it through GoDaddy, with the confidence of high quality support and reliability from a multibillion dollar company with operations all over the world.

Domain Research Group, we made this site. We're connecting the dots, showing you new possibilities.

Compatibility with GoDaddy services?

Yup! Check out i❤️tacos.ws, an example site we put together on GoCentral, GoDaddy's excellent new website builder.

SSL, DNS... all the normal GoDaddy services. This site comes to you from a VM somewhere deep within a GoDaddy datacenter.

Email is a little sketchy -- not because the services don't work, but because some mail transports reject unicode domains.

How do I forward my domains?

If you purchase your Emoji Domain through i❤️domains, you can take advantage of GoDaddy's sophisticated URL shortener.

Can I mix ASCII and emoji?

Yes! New in 2017! Need some inspiration? Maybe start with your name?

Emoji Search Results?

Emoji Domains are fully Google compatible. Also, Bing.

Is there an Emoji Domain API?

You betcha. It works like this: https://i❤️.ws/emojidomain/i❤️softening.ws?format=json

What about Emoji Domain Name Auctions?

The Emoji Domain Name Marketplace presents GoDaddy auctions listings in a clear and concise manner. All Emoji Domains, all the time.

Supported .TLDs

Only .WS Accepts Text and Emoji

Peanut butter & jelly. Peas & carrots. Cagney & Lacey.

Emoji & text... of course they go together, right?

It seems impossible this hasn't always existed.

How can they do that?

It's always been technically feasible... it's just that no one ever really thought to do it.

If you're interested, you can read a brief history of Emoji Domains, but the short story is that .ws, as the official designated registry partner of the government of Western Samoa, is, like, a sovereign entity.

As a ccTLD, they're free to experiment, try new things, be pioneers.

Maybe you're a ccTLD too? Hit us up! It might be easier than you think to get on board.

i❤️domains.com: Don't Hold Your Breath

The gTLDs -- dotcom as well as all those .ninja and .guru domain extensions -- they're gTLDs, bound by ICANN rules. That is to say, they won't be allowed to register Emoji Domains until some international body yields to the march of progress.
