Nginx Add On

Nginx Reverse Proxy

Nginx, pronounced “engine-ex,” is an open-source web server used as a reverse proxy, HTTP cache, and load balancer.

It’s built to offer low memory usage and high concurrency. Rather than creating new processes for each web request, Nginx uses an asynchronous, event-driven approach where requests are handled in a single thread.

Nginx supports the ability to load WordPress from a subdirectory while a separate website (WordPress or otherwise) loads at the root domain.

With Nginx, one primary process can control multiple worker processes. 

Pricing: $50 / month / per site

Redis

Redis is an open-source, in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache, and message broker. 

At Kinsta, page caching is already built-in for all sites running on our platform. However, some more dynamic sites do not make the best use of page caching.

Ecommerce sites, membership sites, forums, discussion boards, blogs with extremely active comment sections, and other types of highly dynamic websites will benefit greatly by using Redis.

Redis cache allows for the reuse of cached objects rather than requiring the MySQL database to be queried a second time for the same object. 

This reduces the load on a website’s MySQL database, while simultaneously decreasing the response time of the site and increasing the site’s ability to scale and handle additional traffic.

Pricing: $100 / month / site

Automatic External Backups

Save the hours spent performing individual manual external backups. Instead, automatically back up your WordPress site once per week or per month to either Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage.

External backups can be configured for either a weekly or monthly frequency. You also have a choice between backing up your files only, WordPress database only, or both.

The Kinsta external backups add-on feature gives you the ability to build off-site backups into your disaster recovery strategy without having to configure complex WordPress plugins and connect to an external storage provider.

Pricing:
$2 per month for each site plus $1/GB for external bandwidth

Automatic Hourly and 6-Hour Backups

Do you have an ecommerce site, membership site, a news publication with an army of editors, or another type of continuously changing site? 

Our hourly and 6-hour backup options could be a perfect fit. 

Rest assured that you can upgrade or downgrade this add-on at any time.

These are additional restore points. When you have the hourly backups add-on enabled, automatic daily backups are still taken and available to restore.

Pricing:
6-Hour Backups – $50 / Site / Month
Hourly Backups – $100 / Site / Month

Scale disk space and cdn

Scale Visits and Disk Space

A peak in traffic shouldn’t have you scrambling to change your plan. Our transparent overage pricing lets you calculate in advance.

For large sites with a lot of files or images, increase your plan’s disk space with our monthly add-on.

For additional flexibility, you can increase the storage space of your hosting plan with a few clicks inside the MyKinsta dashboard.

Pricing: 20 GB increments at $20/month per hosting plan

Premium Staging Environments

Every Kinsta account comes with a staging environment for testing and development purposes. However, oftentimes you simply need more.

Want to create templates for future sites? Customers will be able to install plugins, configure them, add content, and much more with Premium Staging Environments.

Each Premium Staging Environment has 12 CPUs, 8 GB of Memory, and the same number of PHP Workers you have for your live site (based on your plan).

You can also turn on Kinsta CDN for a Premium Staging Environment. Since the testing environment closely matches your live environment, you can also perform website speed tests on your test site.

Pricing: $20/month per environment (prorated)

FAQ

How do I set up the Nginx Reverse Proxy?

Please contact support with the inquiry and they will help you with the reverse proxy setup.

Is there a discount on the Reverse Proxy for multiple sites?

This depends on the situation and the number of Reverse Proxies needed. Please contact support with the inquiry.

Do I have to use your External Backups or can I use a plugin to offload backups?

External Backups are built into MyKinsta. All you have to do is add credentials and the system will handle the rest.

What are the best use cases for adding Redis to a site?

Ecommerce sites, membership sites, forums, discussion boards, blogs with extremely active comment sections, and other types of highly dynamic websites will benefit greatly by using Redis.

If I pay annually, does the disk space add-on get charged for the whole year also?

As with all addons (Unless you reach out and ASK for it to be billed annually), it will be billed monthly and the plan you are on will stay annual.

If a plugin update fails, can I also roll back the plugin from the MyKinsta Dashboard?

Yes and no. We will not provide a button or other facility within the plugins/themes page to do this. If users must revert a change because something unexpected happened or their site broke they can restore a backup, we create a backup when an update is performed.

What Is Prorating?

When we prorate a service like Premium Staging Environment, it means you will be charged based on how long the service was in use for that initial month. For example, if you purchase a Premium Staging Environment in the middle of the month, then you will only be charged half price for that month. After that, the regular pricing model takes effect.
