What Our Customers Say
Inversant is a Boston based non-profit focused on helping low-to-moderate income families’ college dreams come true. For almost a decade our web presence was hosted by perhaps the largest registrar/host in the world. They seemed to be more focused on making it impossible for us to get basic things done and even hard to leave.
So once we started getting serious about our digital channels, the choice was clear. We partnered with Kinsta! We chose Kinsta because of their support of non-profits. They offered us generous non-profit pricing for which we’re grateful. Their technical performance is exceptional. Their robust and simple yet effective management console has everything a developer needs (and more). The tools they offer are top notch. Kinsta’s dual-environment workflow is best-in-class and we’ve compared it to many before our final decision.
Their support has been responsive and helpful on the first interaction with a 100% resolution rate for us. The support team – and Kinsta in general – genuinely care about their customers and focus on the value they provide first.
That’s more than enough to maintain our loyalty. We’ve migrated a total of 4 of our non-profit sites to Kinsta and have never been happier! We’d be very likely to recommend them to our friends, colleagues, and even family members who need the best web hosting partner!
Kinsta provides a fantastic product and rock-solid support when it’s needed. We are recommending the platform more and more to our clients. The bonus of reduced pricing for non-profits makes it a no-brainer for hosting your WordPress site.
Our web design firm has been relying on Kinsta for several years now to host and support websites of all shapes and sizes, including our valued nonprofit clients. Having a hosting partner that can scale with our clients’ businesses and provide access to the tools and technologies to help them grow their business helps our WordPress designers focus on creating beautiful websites knowing the Kinsta team has our back.
After 5 years of hosting with Kinsta we’ve been nothing but delighted with their speed, service and overall experience.
After struggling with shared, VPS and other WordPress hosts, we needed to find the right host that could deliver fast, dependable service, allowing us to communicate with those looking for help as well as those looking to help those in need. From migration to blazing fast WordPress hosting, moving our nonprofit organization’s site to Kinsta was the best decision since establishing our online presence.
After a lot of research, I chose Kinsta for our non-profit clients struggling with poor performing WordPress hosting that was difficult to maintain and added to their hidden hosting costs. Kinsta delivered super-fast and reliable web hosting (no downtime in the past 12-months or so!), a good discount for non-profits and excellent 24/7 support from an extremely knowledgeable yet approachable and responsive team; essential for non-profits who may not always have technical resources in-house.
Their initial full-service migration to Kinsta of our clients’ websites was free and took only a few hours. That service made the transition such a smooth, quick process with no loss of uptime. The final result was blisteringly fast websites which have proven themselves to be reliable and with hosting components updated by Kinsta to the latest stable versions while we slept!
If there’s a need to dip into the hosting nuts and bolts, the Kinsta console interface is so intuitive and a breeze to use. I love their staging to live process; we can update WordPress and its plugins and thoroughly test in a safe environment before pushing to the live site. Their recent (free) addition of Cloudflare is another Kinsta plus that beefs up website security significantly. Kinsta always delivers beyond my expectations and is one of those rare organizations that is a joy to work alongside. I would certainly recommend Kinsta to any of our clients!
Mightycause is an online fundraising and donor management platform for nonprofits. While we have our own development team, we utilize WordPress for hosting our educational and blog content. Initially we self hosted on AWS but found it time consuming to manage updates and servers. After looking for a cost effective and turn-key solution we found Kinsta. Our engineering team had strict requirements for stability, speed, and maintainability. Kinsta checked the box on all of these and more! The move to Kinsta was really painless and quick, compared to other WordPress migrations we have done. They had one-on-one support to help us migrate from our AWS instances to their service. Since moving to Kinsta our team has been able to focus on our core product and not on managing a WordPress blog. We are beyond thrilled with the support and service we have received and recommend Kinsta to anyone running a WordPress blog.
All our websites are hosted by Kinsta and we couldn’t be more happy. We don’t have to care about server speed, management, and technical issues. Support is wonderful, always available, and ultra professional. When you have a plug-in issue at 4 PM and it takes 10 minutes for Kinsta support to help you, you know you’re in the good place. Kinsta is an essential key for our org mission.
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.

How Kinsta Can Transform Your Nonprofit Organization
Nonprofits do incredible work helping to serve the common good. Though their emphasis is on public service, they still must be run like businesses. That means having a great website is a necessity. Whether you need to raise donations, spread awareness, or perform vital community outreach, hosting on Kinsta’s industry-leading platform will help drive your organization’s mission forward.
WordPress is an ideal website platform for broadening your nonprofit’s reach. With its $0 price tag and the robust volunteer community supporting it, WordPress offers many benefits:
WordPress is Open Source
WordPress is built by a worldwide community of volunteer developers. It’s not owned by private companies or commercial entities focused on profiting from your use.
WordPress is Customizable
WordPress is known for its flexibility and extendability. There are many thousands of plugins that allow you to add any kind of functionality. You can start a blog, run Electronic Direct Mail (EDM) marketing, and easily accept donations. There are also thousands of themes to choose from so you can save money on web design.
WordPress is Scalable
Whether you have 100 visitors a month or 1 million, WordPress will grow with you. Pair it with our industry-leading managed web hosting for nonprofits and you’ll never have to worry about your site going offline, leaving you to focus on your next big campaign.
Kinsta is Already Empowering Change
Thousands of nonprofits and charitable organizations use Kinsta to power their websites. ForestNation, Economic Policy Institute, Platform, and Mad In America Continuing Education are just some of the nonprofit customers we’re proud to host.
Great causes need great web hosting. Enterprise-grade architecture, high availability, state of the art security, server-level caching, auto-scaling, six types of backups, real-time expert support, and free migrations are must-haves every business needs to succeed online. Your nonprofit can have these too, and at a discounted rate with Kinsta.
A Powerful Nonprofit Hosting Solution
Successfully scaling any organization online is all about getting the fundamentals right. We’ve designed every aspect of our web hosting for nonprofits to provide the solid footing your website needs, no matter your cause.
Fast and Dependable
Many of our customers report big decreases in page load times after switching to Kinsta. We only use state-of-the-art hosting technologies, like Nginx, PHP 8, LXD software containers, MariaDB, and Google Cloud’s compute-optimized C2 virtual machines. Choose from Google Cloud’s 35 strategically placed global data centers and serve your site closest to where your user base is located.
Secure From Hacks
We’ve built our hosting solution on Google Cloud Platform so you benefit from a security model that protects the likes of Google Search, Gmail, and YouTube. We use Linux containers (LXC)—and LXD to orchestrate them—to separate not just each hosting account, but each instance of WordPress for complete resource isolation. We have active and passive security measures in place to stop malicious intent, DDoS attack detection, Cloudflare integration, software-based restrictions, free SSL certificates, and hardware firewalls.
Our scalable infrastructure, built on Compute Engine, is ready to handle even the biggest spikes in traffic, ensuring your site is always online. With our isolated software container technology, our virtual machines automatically allocate hardware resources to each site container as needed. That means you get a highly available hosting configuration that’s private and secure by design while simultaneously allowing resources to be scaled up or down as your site demands.
Get Support From Kinsta
Web hosts are only as good as their people. That’s why our customer support team is always on hand to answer all your questions, every hour, every day.
Raise awareness of your cause faster with free migrations

We approach your site’s move as if it were our own, leveraging years of hosting experience to get your site up and running just like it was before your move.
In addition to our discounted nonprofit pricing, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. We stand behind our services but if you’re not happy with your hosting, cancel within the first 30 days and we’ll issue a full refund.
