Powerful Premium Tier network

This extensive private fiber network delivers traffic over Google’s backbone, not the internet. It features over 100 points of presences (POPs) across the globe, making it the largest of any public cloud provider.

Get 200% faster performance

We also use Google Cloud Platform’s robust compute-optimized C2 virtual machines and have further optimized this infrastructure to handle the demands of WordPress. We’ve delivered performance gains for our customers up to 200% faster, and sites that are more stable, secure, and speedy.

What is Premium Tier?

Premium Tier is designed to minimize distance and hops, resulting in the fastest global transport of your data. Inbound traffic to your site enters Google’s network at the POP closest to your end-user, and the platform then delivers this traffic to your site over the private network.

POP shortcuts

outbound traffic from your site is delivered to visitors on Google’s network and exits at the POP closest to them, wherever they are in the world. This means most traffic reaches its destination with a single hop to the user’s ISP, enjoying low latency and maximum performance.

Get support from Kinsta

Host your sites on Google Cloud’s servers while taking full advantage of our support team’s deep WordPress expertise. Leave the server management to us and get fast response times, proactive solutions, and expert help at scale.

Enterprise-grade protection

Google Cloud’s global cloud load balancing infrastructure provides always-on protection against DDoS, web attacks, and other threats.

Complete isolation

We use Linux containers (LXC), and LXD to orchestrate them, on top of Google Cloud Platform. This enables us to completely isolate not just each account, but every WordPress installation we host.

Uptime monitoring

We check the status of all sites we host every 2 minutes. That’s 720 times every day, so if there’s a problem with your site our engineers are informed right away.

Free SSL certificates

Get world-class SSL encryption with our streamlined set-up and built-in integration. All sites on Kinsta come with free Cloudflare SSL certificates, and custom certificates are supported as well.

Automatic backups

Sites we host are safe and secure with six types of backups. All sites are backed up daily and you’ll always find 14 backups in your MyKinsta dashboard.

Fine-tuned for WordPress

We use Google Cloud firewalls, active and passive security, WordPress-specific security rules, and other advanced features to prevent access to your data.

Hack-free guarantee

Nothing is more important to us than the security of your WordPress website. If it’s compromised on our servers, we’ll fix it for free.

Top tier WordPress hosting, every time

For five years straight, Kinsta’s topped Review Signal’s WordPress hosting performance benchmarks for every plan we offer. We’ve proven that our hosting platform — backed by Google’s recognized reputation for performance, innovation, and security — is consistent, reliable, and one of the fastest in our industry.

Kevin Ohashi from Review Signal

It’s almost boring writing about Kinsta. 100% uptime. 0 Load Impact errors. 3 Load Storm errors. Another Top Tier performance that I’ve come to expect.

We’re constantly innovating

We’re committed to providing the best and latest technologies you need to make the most of what Google Cloud Platform has to offer.

The most powerful platform

Our hosting streamlines the set up and maintenance of the world’s most popular website platform together with the power of the world’s largest privately owned network. We take care of WordPress core and security updates so you get a fully managed solution.

Free migration for everyone

All our plans include free migrations. Migration plugins are great, but moving sites requires experts who can solve unexpected, unique issues along the way. Our engineers approach your site’s move as it were their own, leveraging years of hosting and WordPress experience.

100% private data

Every site we host runs in an isolated container that has all the software resources needed to run the site (Linux, NGINX, PHP, MySQL). This means that the software that runs each site is 100% private and is not shared, even between your own sites.

High-performance caching

We use full page, server-level caching to deliver your content almost instantaneously to users. We’ve also developed our own caching plugin, which is enabled by default all on sites we host, giving you granular control over your site’s caching.

Free automatic backups

We automatically back up all sites we host daily, and you’ll find two weeks’ worth of backups in your MyKinsta dashboard. We provide downloadable backups, manual backup restore points, and system generated backups, which are created during certain events. You can also purchase hourly and six hourly backups as add-ons.

365/7/24 support service

Get the answers you need now, no matter where you are in the world. Our support team responds fast—our average ticket response time in Q3 2019 was 1 minute and 19 seconds.
