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 two minutes for uptime, have very tight software-based restrictions in place, detect DDoS attacks as they happen, and proactively stop malicious code from entering our network.View Plans
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. Because of the sheer scale of Google’s infrastructure, it enables our platform to simply absorb many DDoS attacks automatically.
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. They also employ encryption at rest to store customer data.
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, 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3. WordPress minor security patches are also automatically applied as soon as they are available to ensure your site is fully up to date.
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.
Kinsta employs a lot of other security precautions and has additional tools to protect and lock down your WordPress site. We remove the PHP version you're using from the HTTP headers on your site. Our open_basedir restrictions also don't allow execution of PHP in common directories that are prone to malicious scripts.
There is no need to worry about XML-RPC brute force attacks. These types of requests are blocked by default (unless whitelisted explicitly by our team) and will produce a 403 error, stopping them in their tracks. Need to block a spammer? We've made this easy! In our MyKinsta dashboard, you will find an IP Deny tool you can use to block any IP address from hitting your site.
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.
