Our agency has worked with all the major hosting platforms. Kinsta is crazy fast and the support is stellar! We moved all our clients to Kinsta and haven't looked back.
Absolutely fantastic - cannot rate highly enough in terms of speed, support, and UI. Went from WP Engine to Flywheel then to Kinsta and couldn't be happier.
Hands down one of the best bootstrapped WP hosting companies. Absolutely love their support staff and developer-friendly features (not to mention they are insanely fast).
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.
Really love the level of experience and support Kinsta's live chat engineers provide. The 24/7 support is a game-changer for large sites, especially ecommerce.
