Discussion on: I just bought 👩‍💻👨‍💻.to!

The only problem I see with this is discoverability. Not all keyboards allow for emoji and not many allow for inserting. So, you kinda just have to copy and paste to get it to work. An alternate solution is using Punycode to type the URL, but almost no one knows how to use it. Interesting idea though.

Yup, I would totally not advise this for anything that isn't silly, for the exact reasons you mentioned.

Plus other issues I have found are that a lot of sites don't think emojis are valid as part of URLs, so you can't set your own URL on profiles (although I did manage to work around that with a little help on Twitter...but with 👨💻👩💻 as the result!)

Even buying the domains in the first place is difficult as most sites don't think they are valid as well!

Completely impractical...quite good fun though! 🤣
