How to add emoji in URL?

You can copy and paste an emoji into a URL in WordPress, but otherwise, you need to grab the Unicode.

https://example.com/%EF%B8%8F-red-heart-%EF%B8%8F/

However, in a browser your URL will look like this:

https://example.com/❤️-red-heart-❤️/

How does it work?

The system works because emoji are lettering and ASCII symbols. The browser uses a strategy called “Punycode*” to convert into internationalized domain names (IDN)”❤️❤️❤️”to “xn--qeiaa” behind the scenes. Emoji are automatically translated into code and routed the same way as any other website URL. Then you can see the domain name displayed as an emoji.

Punycode is a representation of Unicode with the limited ASCII character subset used for Internet hostnames. Using Punycode, hostnames containing Unicode characters are transcoding to a subset of ASCII consisting of letters, digits, and hyphens called the Letter-Digit-Hyphen (LDH) subset.
