Fast, Secure, and Scalable Application Hosting

Join over 55,000 developers and digital entrepreneurs on Kinsta’s Platform as a Service (PaaS). Your new home for modern web applications.

Your Application Deserves the Best of Everything

Global and Local

We have 26 locations on 5 continents. Each location offers the fastest Google C2 machines running on Google’s Premium Tier network (the same they use for Search, Gmail, and YouTube).

Fast Setup

Time is money. Code needs to be shipped; yesterday. We provide CTOs, engineers, and developers with a solid infrastructure that is fast to set up, already tested, reliable, and ready to scale.

Simple Solutions

The big Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) providers tend to overcomplicate things. Skip the outdated dashboards, bloated product lines, and confusing functions you won’t use. Deploy your code in minutes.

How It Works

  1. Connect to your GitHub account and choose a repository.
  2. Automatically or manually deploy your application.
  3. Build, scale and run your processes separately.

A Solution and Pricing Model Designed for You. Not Them.

Leave the infrastructure setup, management, and improvement to our engineers and developers. Use yours to keep building that great product. Our pricing is simple. Pay for what you use. It scales up and down with you. It’s designed for you.

  • Many IaaS providers make billing a headache. It’s a surprise each month how big the bill will be. Try selling that to your accounting team.
  • Many PaaS providers have expensive one-size-fits-no-one monthly pricing tiers. They’re hard to understand.
  • Do-it-yourself IaaS options seem good at first, but you’ll lose time and money with all the setup and maintenance. That’s time you’re not working on your product.

A Developer-Focused Feature Set

Scale your app on the same future-proof network that supports Google Search, YouTube, and Gmail. Our infrastructure, built on Google Cloud Platform servers and our isolated container technology, is ready to handle anything. It all runs on Google’s Premium Tier network, their fastest and most reliable. 

24/7 Global Support

Live chat support from our experts is always just a click away. You’re free to focus on development tasks, and we’ll handle server infrastructure. Get more details on how we help.

Google C2 Machines and Premium Tier network

Google’s highest capacity machines and networks trusted for their internal use and ready to scale any web application.

Security

Your app container will be safe. It’s backed by Cloudflare integration for best-in-class firewall, DDoS protection, and SSL.

Custom Domains

Quickly and easily route traffic to domains with support for custom SSL after setup.

Deploy Right From GitHub

Connect your Kinsta containers to your GitHub repos simplified deployments.

Powered by Kubernetes

Your applications will run at maximum efficiency because we manage distribution across our machines with GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine)

Better Performance With Internal Connections

Host both your Database and Application with Kinsta and take advantage of internal connections. Choose your data center and put everything right on the same cluster. It’s:

  • Faster
  • More secure
  • You won’t be billed for internal traffic/bandwidth like with other hosts.

Don’t settle for other hosting providers that only offer shared databases. At Kinsta, dedicated databases with internal connections have no row count limits and no query count limits.

Instead, choose a pod with the RAM and CPU specs that are right for you! 

Have a simple database with a lot of concurrent connections? Improve performance with an internally-connected Kinsta-hosted app and database.

FAQ

Which Frameworks/Languages Can I Use?

We currently support Node.js, Ruby, Python, Java, Scala, PHP, and Go. When using one of these languages/frameworks, we’ll determine and set up the container image automatically. Or you can run almost any app by using your own custom Dockerfiles with a few more configuration steps. Learn more about setting up applications.

Can We Also Host Standalone Databases? Which Types?

Yes, our Database Hosting service supports Redis, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, and MySQL. You can connect Kinsta-hosted applications and your Kinsta-hosted databases all within our infrastructure for blazing-fast speed and security. Learn more about setting up databases.

Can We Host Static Sites?

Yes, kinda. We will be adding full static site features in the future. For now, you can deploy a static site built with Gatsby. We even have a sample GitHub repository to fork or use as a guide.

What Type of Support Does Kinsta Offer?

We offer 24/7/365 chat support. We average less than two minutes of wait time for the first response. 97% of support inquiries are closed with the customer happy and satisfied. Your happiness is our number one priority.

How Does $20 off First Month Work?

Sign up and it will automatically be added to your account. For a limited time, get $20 off your first month of Application Hosting and/or Database hosting. Your first $20 is on us!

The $20 starts depleting when you add your first app or database service on your MyKinsta dashboard, not when you sign up for your account.

Note: This $20 off the first month does not “roll over” to the second monthly cycle. For example, if you only use $8 within the first monthly billing cycle, you cannot keep the remaining $12 off for the next monthly billing cycle.

How Does Billing Work?

You only pay for the server resources your app/database used in a post-payment method. We charge monthly at the end of your billing cycle. All services are prorated to the second. This means you only pay for what you use each day. If you create a service and delete it after a day, you pay just for the time used on that day

How Are Resources Calculated? Do You Charge for Pageviews?

No, we do not charge for pageviews. You are billed for server resources used (CPU cycles, RAM, build time). Your charges are based on the pod size you select.

Which Payment Methods Do You Accept?

We accept these major credit/debit cards; Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, and Discover. Your payment info is stored and processed securely by Stripe and never touches our servers.

Will Taxes Be Included in My Monthly Invoice?

Yes, if it is required in your region. We will comply with local tax regulations for USA sales tax, EU and UK VAT, and GST in India. Learn more about your region below:

Am I Charged When I Enter My Credit Card?

No. You won’t be billed until the end of your first monthly billing cycle. At the end of your first month, you’ll be billed for the server resources you previously used.

Note: Managed WordPress hosting plans are pre-paid, unlike Application Hosting or Database Hosting plans which are post-paid. If you have a new or existing Managed WordPress plan, that will be billed at the beginning of your monthly billing cycle.

What Currency Will I be Charged In?

You will be charged in US Dollars (USD). Your credit or debit card charge will be converted into your currency when deducted from your account.
