Our Terms of Service outlines several types of content that cannot be hosted at Kinsta. In this article, we’ll review a couple of types that we receive the most questions about:

Adult Content

Content such as pornography, nudity, sex-themed products, services, or material 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.

CBD Sites

Sites related to CBD are allowed as long as they comply with the law. Laws pertaining to CBD vary between jurisdictions and often change. You should consult with a qualified attorney to determine how these laws apply to you. Kinsta cannot provide legal advice. It is your responsibility to ensure that your use of Kinsta’s Services is in full compliance with all applicable laws. 

In general, sites related to CBD are permitted, provided that they meet the following criteria:

  1. Any products marketed, sold, or recommended contain CBD derived from hemp containing less than .3% THC (Delta-9 or Delta-8).
  2. Any products marketed, sold, or recommended are derived from hemp grown under and distributed in compliance with an appropriate legal framework or program.
  3. Any products marketed, sold, or recommended are regularly lab tested.

In addition, Clients operating sites related to CBD must be committed to complying with the law, including any regulatory or law enforcement action related to CBD products. 

If you have any questions about hosting a site related to CBD at Kinsta not answered above, open a new chat with our Support team.

Video Hosting or Streaming

Video hosting and streaming are bandwidth-intensive activities that should be done through a suitable third-party storage provider, third-party CDN, or other methods that ensure bandwidth on Kinsta’s network isn’t used.

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.
