A few weeks ago, I wrote an article about emoji domains and why they’re not as popular as you’d think. And while I still wouldn’t recommend running off and converting all of your primary URLs to emoji versions, let’s face it—having an emoji URL is pretty sweet.

So why aren’t more people jumping at the chance to get the “sassy information desk girl” emoji as their website’s URL?
