Searching for Domain Names
You can either search for a domain directly from the homepage or by selecting "Browse domains" which takes you to the marketplace
Alternatively, you can search for domains by our “Certified sellers” Select "Community" in the header and then "Certified sellers" to browse through their collections
When searching for domain names there are 3 possible outcomes:
- 1.The domain is available and unregistered
2. The domain is available and is being auctioned or listed at a fixed price
3. The domain is already registered and is not being auctioned
Certain emojis or domain names can include a variation selector (unicode): U+FE0F or U+FE0E, which is used by your browser to know whether the emojis should be displayed as texts or images. However, some emojis are displayed the same as text and image. This can lead to people owning different domain names that read the same (e.g 😀 with and without a variation selector).
Some people may use these unicodes to scam and mislead buyers. That is, selling a domain name that perceives to be legitimate by eye, but after inspection, prevails to be a domain with a fake version of an emoji, for example.
In an attempt to prevent users from getting scammed by these domains, the marketplace by default does not show domains with suspect unicodes, unless searched for directly.
