Database Hosting

With Kinsta’s Database Hosting, you can host any of the following database types on any one of our 25 data centers:

  • Redis 5.0, 6.x and 7.x
  • MariaDB 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 11.0 and 11.1
  • PostgreSQL 9.6, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16
  • MySQL 8.0
  • Valkey 7.2

You can select different versions of these databases to suit your existing project.

It’s also possible to utilize a Dockerfile and persistent storage to deploy other types of databases on Application Hosting.


You can easily scale up your database’s CPU, RAM, and disk space when needed. You can also increase your database disk space without increasing the RAM or CPU with the database disk space add-on.

Internal connections

You can attach databases to applications or run databases by themselves. If you host both your application and database with Kinsta, you can set up an internal connection between them to create a private network where everything is hosted on the same cluster. As this stays within our network, it is faster, more secure, and there is no internal bandwidth cost. 

Automatic backups

We provide automatic daily backups for Database Hosting that are stored for 7 days. You can also manually create up to 5 manual backups, which are stored for 14 days


Database Hosting pricing is usage-based, so you only pay for the resources your database uses, based on the following:

For information about how we calculate these, refer to Database Pricing.
