Prohibited Content

Our Terms of Service outlines several types of content that cannot be hosted at Kinsta, it also outlines customer obligations and acceptable use, such as compliance with laws and what determines malicious activity. In this article, we’ll review a couple of types that we receive the most questions about.

Adult content

Content that is pornographic, sexually obscene, sexually exploitative of children, or otherwise sexually explicit is not allowed. If you’re not sure whether or not your content is adult content, open a chat with our Support team, and we can let you know if it can be hosted at Kinsta.

Video hosting or streaming

Video hosting is allowed at Kinsta if you’re hosting one of the following:

  1. An application or site on our Application Hosting.
  2. A WordPress site on a legacy bandwidth-based hosting plan.
  3. A WordPress site on a visitor-based hosting plan with all of the following:

If your site doesn’t fit the requirements described above, third-party video hosting services such as YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, etc. are usually good alternatives. For more options for offloading videos and other bandwidth-intensive files, see our guide on How to Optimally Offload PDF, DOCX, and MP3 Hosting.

Other content

We recommend reviewing our Terms of Service if you’re unsure about your content. If that doesn’t answer your questions, please open a chat with our Support team and provide details about your content, and we’ll let you know if it can be hosted at Kinsta.

If you have a query about hosting any website or content related to cannabis (including Marijuana, Hemp, CBD, & THC), please contact our Support team.
