I have tried many different hosts: Liquid Web, SoftLayer, WP Engine, Web Synthesis, Rackspace, etc. Out of all of them, Kinsta has been the best in terms of support, speed, and pricing. I am very impressed with their knowledge and the skill level of support. As well as their response times and not having to deal with the typical “level 1” support. Expert support fast, what more can you ask for? My WordPress site runs really fast with Kinsta and it was very hard to find the necessary expertise with these other companies. Additionally, I love the fact that I can scale-up a server for a week during peak traffic times to handle the load. Amazing.

Consistent, high-availability infrastructure

State of the art security

Our platform is built on Google Cloud Platform—a security model that protects the likes of Google Search and Gmail. We use Linux containers (LXC)—and LXD to orchestrate them—isolating hosting accounts. On top of all that, we have active and passive measures in place to stop malicious intent, DDoS attack detection, software-based restrictions, SSL support, and hardware firewalls.

Blazing fast performance

We only use the latest and best hosting technologies—Nginx, PHP 8.2, LXD software containers, MariaDB, and compute-optimized VMs. We serve billions of bytes and page views every month with exceptional stability and uptime. Traffic surges, unexpected peaks—our servers are ready for anything you throw at them.

Peace of mind backups

All hosting plans include six types of backups. Schedule automated daily backups, run manual backups, and access downloadable backups and system-generated backups that run when important tasks are performed. Hourly and six-hourly backup add-ons are also available—essential for WooCommerce stores and sites with dynamic content. You’ll always find two weeks of backups in your MyKinsta dashboard.

Free hack fix guarantee

If your WordPress site is successfully compromised while hosted at Kinsta we’ll work with you to undo the damage. Our security guarantee includes a free inspection of your site and a deep scan of your files to identify any malware, repair of the core site files using a fresh install of WordPress, and the identification and removal of any infected plugins and themes.

Thousands of five-star ratings.
And counting.

“With super-low problem-to-solution times and competence for days, we haven’t experienced support at this level from any company of any kind—including award winners like WP Engine and Apple. No kidding.”
