  1. Thanks for the great write up! A lot of us over here at Convesio come from agencies. We wanted to make a product that solved a lot of the gripes we had about hosting at other places. That is why we made an easy to use interface, and added a bunch of features that we felt should be easily available from your admin. It is nice to see that our effort is appreciated.
