How Other Tech Stacks Up

How does Kinsta’s PostgreSQL hosting stack up against other options?

No extra fees, support contracts, or tiers. Get a real human expert in minutes (holidays and weekends included).
Tickets or forum support only
You’ll pay up to $1,000/month at Heroku, Digital Ocean, or Fly to access direct contact with a support agent.
Speed30% faster
Your Kinsta-hosted app can use internal database connections getting you 30% faster speeds than Heroku (after extensive testing).
Slow external connections
Heroku and most other hosts don’t offer internal database connections, which can lead to slower, less secure, yet more expensive database hosting
Your MyKinsta dashboard lets you do everything from one place. No fiddling around with outdated dashboards. And our product lines are simple to understand.
No MyKinsta and complexity
Many other hosts have complicated product lines with hundreds of confusing and overlapping options. And they often have multiple confusing, separate control panels.

These comparisons are based on hundreds of real-world speed tests performed on actual server clusters and good-faith comparative research performed throughout November and December 2022.

Tech Tips


What are some advantages of PostgreSQL?

PostgreSQL is open source and trusted by many large brands. It can handle lots of data with speed, it’s extensible, and is supported by a large community. 

Can I Change My PostgreSQL Database Size?

Yes, you can increase the CPU/RAM/storage resources your database has allocated to it at any time on your MyKinsta Dashboard. Learn more on our Docs.

Can We Also Host Other Standalone Databases? Which Types?

Yes, our Database Hosting service also supports Redis, MariaDB, and MySQL.

How Does the $20 off First Month Work?

Sign up for any of Kinsta’s Application Hosting or Database Hosting tiers and you’ll automatically join our free trial. The free trial is limited to $20 in server resources and applies only to your first month of hosting.

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

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.

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.
