It's no surprise to us here at TNW Creations that GoDaddy and Shopify are leading the march on Website Solutions and Wix is dropping.
As web developers, we actually see the changes firsthand as client requests changes or customers become frustrated with a platform.
Today, GoDaddy shares drove upwards of 4% and caught our attention.
We were already aware of the sharp change in trend from Wix to WordPress and since WP comprises a large number of websites on GoDaddy Servers - that really makes a lot of sense.
Seeing what we already knew in numbers on the Stockmarket was pretty satisfying. What can I say, the Boss loves being right.
WIX - Wix.com Ltd. reportedly plunging 10% as earnings fell far below expectations.

Shopify has been trending upwards for ecommerce solutions. As Partner Developers for Wix and Shopify, we agree there are more options for clients at Shopify than Wix. However, we actually prefer Ecwid for developers creating ecommerce stores or GoDaddy for DIYers making their own online stores.
Anyone who invests knows that stocks change. What's hot now, might be cold later. And the same goes for technology. That's why we like to stay up on what is working.
I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides theportfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my community, church & family.
