Nothing is more important to us than the security of your website. Kinsta’s secure WordPress hosting solution implements active and passive measures to stop attacks in its tracks. We monitor your sites every minute for uptime, detect DDoS attacks as they happen and proactively stop malicious code from entering our network.
Your WordPress sites are monitored and secured 24/7.
We support two-factor authentication, continuously run malware scans, and automatically ban IPs that have more than 6 failed login attempts in a minute.
We have hardware firewalls, active and passive security, and other advanced features to prevent access to your data. But if your site is compromised, we’ll fix it for free.
We only support encrypted SFTP and SSH connections (no FTP) when accessing your WordPress sites directly and offer free Let’s Encrypt certificates to enable HTTPS.
Nothing is ever 100% hack-proof. We automatically create 2 weeks worth of backups, meaning a hacked or defaced site can be instantly rolled back.
Kinsta uses Linux containers (LXC), and LXD to orchestrate them, on top of Google Cloud Platform which enables us to completely isolate not just each account, but each separate WordPress site. This is a much more secure method than offered by other competitors. Google also has relationships with some of the biggest ISPs in the world, which helps improve the security of your data in transit as it means less hops across the public internet.
We will also never host a WordPress site that is running on an unsupported version of PHP due to the fact that they no longer have security updates and are exposed to un-patched security vulnerabilities. We offer current supported versions only, PHP 5.6, 7, and 7.1. WordPress minor security patches are also automatically applied as soon as they are available to ensure your site is fully up to date.
WordPress in itself is not insecure, it’s usually bad user practices and out of date software that causes problems.
Here are some reasons below why secure WordPress hosting is so important:
“We had been with another hosting company for several years. Their customer service was always challenging. Two months ago, our site was hacked. Ever since then, we struggled to get it fixed. The hosting company not only doubled our monthly fees, but failed repeatedly to get the situation under control. They left us with a broken WordPress site that they couldn’t fix. We lost revenues and site visits.
Finally, someone recommended we try Kinsta. In less than 48 hours, we were full transferred over and the site was no longer broken! They fixed everything so quickly. The customer service is incredibly responsive, 24/7 access, very pleasant and timely. We are so thrilled to finally have a true hosting partner that understands and knows how to help us. We are planning a lot of growth in the next year and are grateful to have found a hosting partner we feel confident will help us succeed.”

Not only do users have problems, but even the competition has encountered major security breaches over the past couple years.
This is why it is imperative that you choose a host you can trust that employs the latest security measures.
