We’re well into our crowdfunding campaign with over 300 investors to date and so close to hitting the $800,000 mark. A huge thank you to everyone! Our new stretch goal will let us fund Convesio even more effectively.
Connecting with our community is vital for a successful WordPress business – it’s the developers, designers, investors, and organizers that propel the global success of WordPress. We weighed the options for raising money from angel investors, traditional VCs, and crowdfunding, because we wanted to choose a route that not only honored the spirit of the WordPress community, but also enabled those who believe as we do to come with us on this amazing journey.
Today, with our community in mind, we’d like to share some of the coverage we’ve received recently online:
Convesio is the future of WordPress hosting – WPLift.com
“When You Need It” Managed WordPress Hosting
With traditional hosting, it’s often the case that you’re paying more than what you’re actually using. For example, if you have a client site that gets 100,000 visitors a month and 10 other client sites that only get 2,000 visits, you end up paying for your VPS based on the capacity of the biggest site on your server. This also means undercharging and overcharging clients.
With Convesio, pricing is simple: you pay for what you use. If you have a client site that needs 10 containers, you pay for 10 containers. And if you have another client that only needs one container, you pay for 1 container.”

Removing Single Points of Failure in WordPress
WordPress, like any other piece of software, is fallible. If the cache breaks on a WordPress site, the whole site breaks down. If code in a WordPress core update doesn’t play well with code in a third-party plugin, again, the whole site breaks.
Similarly, traditional managed WordPress hosting solutions, such as shared and VPS hosting, are prone to single points of failure.
With shared hosting, there are thousands of sites on each server. This means if any single site goes viral, gets hacked, or falls victim to a DDoS attack, every site on the server is affected.
While VPS does offer some isolation from other sites on the same server, it doesn’t protect your sites from hardware failures or another site’s traffic overwhelming the VPS. In addition, the vast majority of VPS solutions still run on one server with one database instance.
Creative and digital agencies shouldn’t have to deal with single points of failure. After all, these are hosting concerns — problems that hosting providers should be mitigating.
Convesio’s hosting architecture addresses all of these single points of failure and more, through a combination of open source software and proprietary code. Their container-based approach means your sites aren’t just isolated from bad neighbors on the same server, but new containers can be instantly spun up — complete with an up-to-date version of your client site — to load balance traffic to your site. Containers can be created on multiple servers, sharing the load and eliminating any single point of failure.
