WooCommerce CBD

Build a powerful, customizable, scalable online CBD store by combining WooCommerce with the state-of-the-art, award-winning MyKinsta WordPress hosting platform.

Why WooCommerce and Kinsta For Your Online CBD Store?

The business of cannabidiol (CBD) is rapidly rising in popularity around the globe. And like any other business, it’s important that CBD online store owners have full ownership and control of their website.

Proprietary website builders like Wix and Squarespace can decide they don’t want to host your CBD site at any time. If they do, you’re out of luck and will have to rebuild your site from scratch somewhere else.

When you build your CBD store using WordPress and WooCommerce, you own your website’s code and aren’t beholden to any specific platform.

Most important, when you choose Kinsta CBD hosting for your WooCommerce CBD store, you gain access to MyKinsta, our award-winning WordPress hosting platform that provides blazing fast load times that can boost your revenue, SEO, ROI, and user experience.

Supercharge Your WooCommerce CBD Store With Premium Add-Ons

Take your CBD store to the next level with a selection of premium add-ons that are all easily accessible right from your MyKinsta dashboard.

Nginx Reverse Proxy

Nginx, pronounced “engine-ex,” is an open-source web server used as a reverse proxy, HTTP cache, and load balancer.

It’s built to offer low memory usage and high concurrency. Rather than creating new processes for each web request, Nginx uses an asynchronous, event-driven approach where requests are handled in a single thread.

Nginx supports the ability to load WordPress from a subdirectory while a separate website (WordPress or otherwise) loads at the root domain.

With Nginx, one master process can control multiple worker processes. 

Redis

At Kinsta, page caching is already built-in for all sites running on our platform. However, some more dynamic sites do not make the best use of page caching.

Ecommerce sites, membership sites, forums, discussion boards, blogs with extremely active comment sections, and other types of highly dynamic websites will benefit greatly by using Redis.

Redis cache allows for the reuse of cached objects rather than requiring the MySQL database to be queried a second time for the same object. 

This reduces the load on a website’s MySQL database, while simultaneously decreasing the response time of the site and increasing the site’s ability to scale and handle additional traffic.

Automatic External, Hourly, and 6-Hour Backup Options

External backups can be configured for either a weekly or monthly frequency. You also have a choice between backing up your files only, WordPress database only, or both.

Your ecommerce site is a continuously changing site. Our hourly and 6-hour backup options could be a perfect fit. Rest assured that you can upgrade or downgrade this add-on at any time.

These are additional restore points. When you have the hourly backups add-on enabled, automatic daily backups are still taken and available to restore.

Scale Visits and Disk Space

A peak in traffic shouldn’t have you scrambling to change your plan. Our transparent overage pricing lets you calculate in advance. For large sites with a lot of files or images, increase your plan’s disk space with our monthly add-on.

For additional flexibility, you can increase the storage space of your hosting plan with a few clicks inside the MyKinsta dashboard.

Thousands of five-star ratings.
And counting.
