Consistent, high-availability infrastructure
State of the art security
Our platform is built on Google Cloud Platform—a security model that protects the likes of Google Search and Gmail. We use Linux containers (LXC)—and LXD to orchestrate them—isolating hosting accounts and instances of WordPress. On top of all that, we have active and passive measures in place to stop malicious intent, DDoS attack detection, software-based restrictions, SSL support, and hardware firewalls.
Blazing fast performance
We only use the latest and best hosting technologies—Nginx, PHP 8.1, LXD software containers, MariaDB, and compute-optimized VMs. We serve billions of bytes and page views every month with exceptional stability and uptime. Traffic surges, unexpected peaks—our servers are ready for anything you throw at them.
Peace of mind backups
All hosting plans include six types of backups. Schedule automated daily backups, run manual backups, and access downloadable backups and system-generated backups that run when important tasks are performed. Hourly and six-hourly backup add-ons are also available—essential for WooCommerce stores and sites with dynamic content. You’ll always find two weeks of backups in your MyKinsta dashboard.
Free hack fix guarantee
If your WordPress site is successfully compromised while hosted at Kinsta we’ll work with you to undo the damage. Our security guarantee includes a free inspection of your site and a deep scan of your files to identify any malware, repair of the core site files using a fresh install of WordPress, and the identification and removal of any infected plugins and themes.
Thousands of five-star ratings. And counting.
“With super-low problem-to-solution times and competence for days, we haven’t experienced support at this level from any company of any kind—including award winners like WP Engine and Apple. No kidding.”
It's the one area of my business I know I don't have to think about. The support is incredible, and everything about the platform is thoughtfully designed and incredibly easy to use, and my customers' sites are safe and secure.
I have been transferring a WordPress site to their servers with over 8,000 posts/pages and they have been extraordinary with their help. I am used to only ask for access with my previous host but have to do all of the work myself, and Kinsta goes above just giving me access and actually fixes my issues. It really feels like paying for more than just a hosting platform, but a service/support system that is available 24/7 to help me within minutes. This is amazing!
The best part is their service though. At first I was a little leery about leaving behind my 24/7 phone support at WPE. However, the chat support at Kinsta is even better, and has revolutionized my perceptions about how to offer spectacular support these days. Responses are fast, always professional and friendly, and ALWAYS extremely knowledgeable.
Kinsta gives us everything we need in a host in an intuitive package, and nothing more — it’s usable and understandable. Options are clear and not overwhelming, and support is A+.
Kinsta support is fantastic. They just solve the issue, whatever it is, with a smile and keep going. Kinsta does business the way it should be done.Kinsta's platform has allowed us to migrate a non-Wordpress (WP) site gradually so that we make fewer mistakes. The ability to host a hybrid site (WP and non-WP) has been a huge help.
Managing more than 100 websites carries the potential for overwhelming tech support issues. But the switch to Kinsta has decreased our support tickets by roughly 50%. Our sites just work–they’re live, they’re fast, they’re protected, and they’re (expertly) supported. And that frees us to take care of our clients, which keeps them happy (98%+ retention rate) and our families fed! Kinsta frees me from spending time on things that are outside our wheelhouse. Kinsta’s ability to do what they do frees us to what we do in a way that far exceeds what we’ve experienced from other managed hosting companies.
I also can’t think of one support event that didn’t meet my expectations. Since I see all the support tickets, I’ve noticed they even try to help my staff in areas out of the Kinsta scope. They deal with dumb questions in a professional manner.
