dotFM to Launch Emoji Domain Names

dotfm_emoji_logoComing soon, BRS Media will launch emoji-based domain names for the .fm top level domain. An emoji domain name is one with an expressive digital image or icon in it, for example, ?.fm

.fm, which is the country code top level domain for the Federated States of Micronesia, is operated by BRS Media as a top level domain name for the FM radio industry, broadcasters and more.

“We are extremely ‘?‘ to announce the launch of emoji domains under the .fm Top-Level Domain,” remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc. “Today emojis are incorporated in all aspects of consumers online conversations; social media, texting and messaging, why not web domains? Emoji domains date back to 1995, but recent demand has sparked an explosion in popularity. dotFM is excited to be one of only a few prime TLDs to support emoji-based domain names.”

Emoji Domain Names will be available based on Unicode Consortium Emoji Version 5.0 standards using single code point; and allowing a mix of letters and emoji characters under the top-level .FM, as well as the dotRadio extensions, .RADIO.fm and .RADIO.am at a launch date to be announced soon. Emojis are supported by most major search engines, all modern web browsers and all operating systems; iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux.

BRS Media launched the .fm and .am (Armenia) TLDs in 1998. Since that time, the .FM Brand Registry Service has evolved to meet the growing demand and creativity of the clientele. Today, the comprehensive portfolio of registrants not only includes broadcasters, Internet radio and the music community, but also interactive companies, premier social media ventures and podcast entrepreneurs worldwide. Some of the world’s most innovative .FM brands include; Overcast.fm, CarrieUnderwood.fm, Earbud.fm, Rainmaker.fm, Southwest.fm, Jazz.fm, Coca-Cola.fm, Summertime.fm, among thousands more.
