View Full Version : Emoji Symbol Domains

25th February 2012, 02:11 AM
Registrants are still excited about symbol domains, this time in the Emoji unicode range. Meanwhile, some registries don't follow IDNA2008 and allow registrations.

(Why are they so hard to register? Due to fears of IDN homograph attacks, most registrars, like .com, now only allow specific language sets to be used for Unicode domain names. The days of registering ☃.net — a previous Cabel effort in this series — are long gone. In fact, back in 2007 ICANN expressly recommended that “symbols and icons [...] such as typographic and pictographic dingbats” should not be allowable code points for domain names. Fortunately, Laos didn’t get the memo.)

Americans will do anything to throw money down the toilet.

But with their currency, you can understand the confusion.

Will the next Greece please step forward?
