Give Your Node.js App The Best of Everything

Google C2 Machines

Run your Node.js app on Google Cloud Platform servers. We only offer their fastest-available C2 Machines in your choice of 25 data center locations on 5 continents.

Premium Tier Network

It all runs on Google’s Premium Tier network, their fastest and most reliable network. The same used for Gmail, Search, YouTube, and many top international brands.

Enterprise-Class Security

Kinsta is a SOC 2 compliant. We take protecting your app seriously with Cloudflare DDoS protection, web application firewall, and isolated container technology with private networks.

Internal Database Connections

Host your database and application on the same data center and cluster. This is faster, more secure, and cost-effective. No row/query limits. Free internal bandwidth.

Autoscale with Kubernetes

Enable optional automatic scaling to horizontally scale instances of your app on demand. You can set minimum and maximum pod instance counts.

24/7/365 Live Chat Support

We include 24/7 support on all server pods. You don’t need to purchase expensive support packages to get live help.

Git Deployments

Automatically deploy from your Git repo any time you publish new code to your specified branch within MyKinsta.

Unlimited Concurrent Builds

Many web hosts lock you into one build per account. With Kinsta you can trigger unlimited, even concurrent builds.


MyKinsta is designed for simplicity and collaboration with unlimited collaborators and a UI using common industry terms (no fluff).

Persistent Storage

Add a disk to create a stateful app that stores data in a file system. Data will be saved (persist) after redeploying, restarting, or shutting down. Use with the npm package node-persist.

Kinsta API

Work more efficiently using our REST API to quickly retrieve data, perform actions, fetch deployment or process information to automate or customize your workflows.

Web Terminal

Enable command-line access to your app’s container. Add IP addresses to your allow list and then read files, manually run scripts, debug, or do application performance monitoring.

Start Your Free Trial

Try out your app on a live server with our Node.js hosting. This is a full-featured pod, not a low-powered trial tier.

Plus, our Cloudflare-integrated CDN has 260+ PoPs so your images and static assets load at maximum speed.

Here’s What Our Customers Say

Customers love us for our commitment to cutting-edge technology, improving the developer experience, and expert support.


Do You Have Documentation For Node.js Hosting?

Yes, see our Node.js Quick Start Example page for more details on deployment. Also, we have a starter (hello world) GitHub repo that you can fork and use as a starter Node.js app.

Do You Have Any Resources For Node.js / npm Development?

Yes, we have several articles to help you learn more about Node.js and npm. And more are on the way.

Do you offer persistent storage for hosting stateful applications?

Yes, on the MyKinsta control panel you can create an application and attach a disk to it for storing persistent data in a file system. Please note:

  • Any application without an attached disk is stateless, meaning all data will be erased when you redeploy, restart, or shut down the application. No user data is retained.
  • You can see persistent storage pricing options here.
  • Persistent storage is also sometimes called: non-volatile storage, persistent disk storage, persistent data, or persistent volume.
How Does the Free Trial Work?

You can sign up for a free trial of our Application Hosting or Database Hosting. The trial is limited to $20 in server credits and applies only to your first billing month.

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 Is Server Usage Calculated? Do You Charge for Pageviews?

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

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.
