Why Businesses Choose Kinsta
Kinsta is reliable and makes shipping changes easy. The support team was exceedingly helpful when we needed to migrate our blog. A+ on their support team.
I’m really enjoying the Kinsta dashboard and that I can create a staging copy with full access with one click. I previously created new servers and manually copied everything when I needed a staging site.
Running a complex, demanding and agile website for a University is a challenge where Kinsta managed areas help us to concentrate on our content. Speed, uptime and security are key issues for us and Kinsta delivers.
We’re a hybrid agency offering membership websites as a platform service. Kinsta is an integral part of our stack and offering to clients. Their servers and back-end tools allow us to quickly spin up new membership site builds with the performance and resources needed to scale. Some of our clients do millions in revenue, so the decision to host with Kinsta was not a light one.
As a technologist and seasoned WP hosting customer, I can tell you that there are very few companies that compare to Kinsta for membership site hosting. Save yourself A LOT of time and energy and just host with Kinsta. I’ve been nothing short of pleased for the last 3+ years as a customer. Everything from tools to support is top notch, which is exactly what you need when managing high performance membership sites.
Running a WordPress agency that specialises in membership websites means that we have tried a number of different hosting solutions for our clients. I can say 100% hands down that the hosting provided by Kinsta for membership sites is second to none. Our sites run faster and with minimal to no downtime, bugs or errors compared with other hosting providers. If there is a problem then the Kinsta team provide instant support and get it fixed ASAP. I would highly recommend Kinsta to anyone with a membership site.
An Award-Winning SMB Hosting Platform
Our customers named Kinsta one of G2’s top-rated small business hosting services
A Better Small Business Hosting Experience
Enterprise-grade architecture, high availability, state-of-the-art security, server-level caching, six types of backups, real-time expert support, free migrations… These are must-haves every SMB needs to succeed — and you can have them right now with Kinsta.
Speed Up, Scale Up
The internet of the 90s moved about as quickly as a sloth running the Boston Marathon with a hangover. Fast forward 20 years and the landscape has changed beyond recognition. Users expect lightning-fast load times and a frictionless online experience. What’s more, these expectations only keep rising as more people work and do their shopping online.
Every Millisecond Counts
For every millisecond you shave off your site’s load time, you boost customer trust and confidence in your small business. When your brand is everything, it’s critical you show customers that you’re fast, trustworthy, and you mean business. And it helps if your web host is these things too.
Focus on the Future
Many SMBs opt for hosting that’s $5 a month or less. We get it. Businesses have tight budgets. But when you choose cheap small business hosting, you inevitably get what you pay for — low-quality shared hosting and all the problems associated with it. Issues like downtime, slow page speeds, poor customer service, increased security risks, and a lack of backups.
Leave Trouble Behind
When you invest in quality SMB hosting with Kinsta, you are investing in your business — and saving yourself a lot of time from all the trouble that comes with shared hosting. Because every minute saved is a minute you can focus on growing your business and boosting your brand.

The Cost of Snail’s Pace
A slow website will impact your online success in three key ways:
If your site is slow, don’t be surprised if it hits your bottom line because 47% of customers expect a site to load in 2 seconds, and 40% will abandon it if it takes longer than 3 seconds.
Your page load speed and responsiveness to user requests directly impact customer loyalty. It’s simple: better site performance means greater user satisfaction, which in turn means increased sales and brand strength.
Site speed is a search ranking factor. So the faster your site, the more likely it is Google will rank your small business higher in search engine results pages (SERPs).
A Complete Small Business Hosting Solution
Successfully scaling a business, whether it’s an ecommerce site, an agency, or a SaaS, is all about doing the fundamentals and having the stamina to see it through. We’ve designed every aspect of our platform to provide the solid footing you need, no matter what kind of business you run.
We’re obsessed with speed and performance
Many of our customers report huge decreases in load times after switching to Kinsta. We only use state-of-the-art web hosting technologies, so your site will enjoy complete resource isolation, a scalable infrastructure, and high availability. Choose from Google Cloud Platform’s 35 strategically placed global data centers and serve your site closest to where your users are located. Traffic spikes, sudden surges, Black Friday sales — our platform is ready for anything.
We’ll protect you from vulnerabilities and attacks
We use Google Cloud Platform and Cloudflare so you’ll reap the benefits of a security model that protects some of the world’s biggest brands. We use Linux containers (LXC)—and LXD to orchestrate them—to completely isolate not just each SMB hosting account, but each instance of WordPress. Lastly, our infrastructure is protected by a secure Cloudflare integration, which includes free DDoS protection, automatic SSL support, and more.
We’ll help you scale your business
Our scalable infrastructure, built on Google Compute Engine servers, is ready to handle sudden surges in traffic and load so your site is always online, 24/7. With our isolated software container technology, our virtual machines automatically allocate hardware resources to each site container as-needed. That means you’ll get a highly available SMB hosting configuration for WordPress that’s secure and private by design while simultaneously allowing resources to be scaled up or down as your site demands.
Get To Market Faster With Free Migrations
When you make the switch to Kinsta, we’re here to help. All our plans include free website migrations, so you won’t need to hire a developer. Simply fill out our migration request form in the MyKinsta dashboard, and our migration team will do the rest. We move sites from popular hosting services to our platform around the clock, so chances are we’ve dealt with your existing host before.

We stand behind our services here at Kinsta but want to make sure you’re happy with your hosting. So if you cancel your account within the first 30 days of services, we will issue a full refund.
