If you’re a WordPress agency and would like to move your clients over to Kinsta, there are a few different ways you can operate: through our Agency Partner Program, our Affiliate Program, or with a combination of the two.

We’ll take a look at all the main benefits each program offers in this article.

Ready? Let’s dive in!

1. Agency Partner Program

The Kinsta Agency Partner Program is designed specifically for web and creative agencies that manage hosting for their clients’ sites. It brings customizable plans, site white-labeling, free hosting for the agency site, unlimited free migrations, and more.

In the Agency Program, you purchase a Kinsta plan with multiple WordPress installs and add your clients’ sites within your own MyKinsta account. This model allows you to fully manage your clients’ hosting experience, including the billing.

Kinsta’s Agency Program makes it super easy for you to resell web hosting services and help you take care of your clients’ sites through a unified dashboard.

If this sounds like a good fit for you, check the available Kinsta Agency plans and get in touch!

2. Affiliate Program

If you’re more interested in earning commissions instead, then you should take a look at the Kinsta Affiliate Program. Once you enroll, you’ll get access to custom banners, unique promotional materials, trackable affiliate links, and a powerful dashboard to keep track of your referrals.

For each referred customer, you’ll receive both of the following:

  • A one-time commission between $50 and $500
  • A monthly recurring commission of 10%

Keep in mind that per Kinsta’s affiliate terms, the customers need to take care of the billing for their new MyKinsta account themselves. They’re welcome to grant you access as an “administrator” or “developer” user, but they must be the ones to buy the plan and maintain ownership of the account.

Feel free to apply for Kinsta’s Affiliate Program at any time.

3. Mixed Model

Thinking about mashing two potatoes with one fork? We love this approach — that’s why you’d be more than welcome to join both programs and utilize each for different clients.

However, note that you cannot host a client’s site within your Agency plan and still receive affiliate commissions for referring that same customer.
