Thanks for stopping by i😀.ws! Hopefully, we can answer your questions here, but there's more information about emoji domains at i❤️.ws.
i😀.ws is a site which sells emoji domains specifically on the .ws TLD (Top Level Domain... like .com or .dog). Here, you can look for available .ws emoji domains by character or just or just search for .ws emoji domains.
An emoji domain is a domain name with emoji in it... like this site: i😀.ws!
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.
No! Believe me... we'd love to sell you one, but right now emoji domains banned by ICANN, the UN-like governing body which oversees this area of the internet.
Now, that doesn't mean you can't buy an emoji domain -- obviously -- but they're mostly supported by smaller TLDs like this one, .ws.
Don't worry, it's cool. We use GoDaddy for our backend services, ensuring smooth and easy domain management from a reputable vendor with excellent 24 hour customer service.
