How It Works

  1. Select the database type and version you want
  2. Choose a location for your database
  3. Configure the resources you will need for your database
  4. Deploy

After that, it’s easy to connect your database to Kinsta-hosted apps with blazing-fast and secure internal connections. Or easily set up external connections.

Your Database Deserves the Best of Everything

Industry-Leading Architecture

Scale your database on the same 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. 

Quick Set Up

It takes more time and more money to configure your own servers and containers. Skip all that by letting us create the environment for you. Just connect to your code repository and go. We’ll handle deployments and security.

24/7 Global Support

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

Better Performance With Internal Connections

Host both your Application and Database 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.

  • MariaDB 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6
  • PostgreSQL 9.6, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14
  • MySQL 8.0

Support for more database types is planned for the future. Don’t see yours? Let us know what you need

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.

How Does the $20 off the 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?

You are billed for server resources used (CPU cycles, RAM, build time). Your charges are based on the pod size you select.

How much server resources you use depends on how your database works (different processes consume different amounts) and the nature of the traffic (e.g., cacheable vs non-cacheable visits).

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.
