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.
We only use the latest and best hosting technologies—Nginx, PHP 8.0, 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.
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.
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.
“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.”
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.
Almost all hosts claim to have fanatical support, but many of them don’t live up to the hype. With Kinsta, you get the best of the best. Their support team is available via chat 24/7, right from your admin area. And you’ll get the friendliest, most helpful WordPress experts you’ve ever talked to.
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.
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.
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 customer's sites are safe and secure.
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.
We’ve tried out all of the major managed WordPress services over the last 10 years and Kinsta’s support system is the best we’ve ever seen, hands down. Most hosts only allow you to file tickets, some let you do live chat, rarely does anyone offer phone support (but there is no point in phone support)... but there is not another managed WordPress host out there that offers tier 1 engineer support as the default. Usually, long gaps of time will go by as they escalate your problem up the engineering seniority list. With Kinsta, you get the actual engineer who is going to fix your problem 100% of the time. Simply unbeatable and unheard of.
Their support team is generally very helpful and have dug in with me to solve obscure issues. In total, I manage about 70 websites across multiple accounts with varied account types and I can say that I get the same response when I ask a question on a 2-site plan as I do when I ask a similar question from a 40-site plan.
