Some years define us, and 2020 is shaping up to be one of them.
2001 was one of those years for me. I lost my job at a tech company during the dot-com bust. Then terrorists flew planes into the twin towers. It was an anxiety-ridden year for many people.
2020 was bad enough with the pandemic. Now, unrest is sweeping across America.
Record unemployment. A deadly virus. Major cities setting curfews as people burn cars in the streets. It seems apocalyptic.
Yet, there is a certain solace people can find online. There is a different world out there that is more peaceful. It operates during a pandemic. It doesn't involve boarded-up shop windows. And as long as you avoid social media, it's an excellent place to escape to.
At the core of that escape are domain names and websites. Wix reported a surge of people creating websites starting in April. The domain business is one of the few bright spots in the economy right now.

And stay safe out there.
