Episode Info: Learn about the game changer for WordPress LMS web hosting with Tom Fanelli in this episode of the LMScast podcast hosted by Chris Badgett of LifterLMS. Convesio is the first self-healing, autoscaling, platform-as-a-service for creating and managing your WordPress websites. Whether your WordPress website serves as a brochure for your business, an eCommerce store, or a full LMS website that caters to customers before and after the sale, you’ll need website hosting. Tom breaks down the different types of website hosting, from the cheapest option of shared hosting that you can find with many companies such as GoDaddy and Bluehost. Then the next step up from there is VPS (virtual private server) hosting where you’re working with similar resources, but they’re dedicated to your website specifically. Then you have cloud hosting, which can refer to hosting technology outside of the scope of shared or VPS hosting. The next tier of hosting for WordPress users would be managed WordPress hosting, and these companies focus exclusively on hosting WordPress websites, rather than trying to serve multiple CMS tools such as Joomla or using your own code. One innovative approach to website hosting with Tom’s platform is the self-healing aspect. Self-healing is the ability for the system you’re hosting with to internally monitor its own health and take steps that are progressively more extreme to repair the issue. The best part about this is there is zero human intervention, because everything happens automatically. Tom shares a story of his experience before starting Convesio with a website going down with a popular WordPress host. The website went down at 5:00am, but he didn’t catch it until 8:00am. And then he had to get in touch with his web host, and someone manually restarted his PHP to get the site back up. This entire process took about 5 hours, where with a solution that is self-healing like Convesio it would have been about 15 seconds between the time the system went down to the server automatically restarting and fixing the issue. Chris and Tom also dive into how Tom was able to get Convesio off the ground using equity crowdfunding instead of using venture capital firms. Tom shares some great tips for anyone considering using equity crowdfunding, and some insights behind how businesses can get off the ground using that instead of traditional investment methods.
