Emoji Link is a URL shortener which uses emojis, which is a relatively new concept in the industry. For example, if you have a long URL http://www.iflscience.com/technology/would-you-eat-a-3d-printed-pizza/, you can turn it into short emoji URL like https://😻🍕.ws/🍕🍕🍕 via Emoji Link. This short URL is actually points to your original URL.
Domains with emojis works because emojis are basically letters and ASCII symbols.
For example, https://😻🍕.ws is actually https://xn--vi8hl0c.ws in the browser. Modern browser will help to translate it automatically. Emojis doamins are available in some newer Top Level Domains (TLDs) such as .ws and .la, which fall outside the standard rules governing other domain name extensions issued by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in traditional TLDs.
Emoji Link currently supports most emojis listed in Unicode.org.
