Membership (Hosting) Has Its Perks

A Kinsta site saves you time and money by including more “perks” or “extras” that simply aren’t included with other hosts. Skip the expense and time spent on configuring other plugins and save it for building your business!

Online Educator Grows with Kinsta

Instructional Designer Dr. Jennifer Jacobs has vast experience in education from early childhood to adult learning. She shares her wealth of knowledge with online courses.

“Kinsta’s support is incredible! Unlike other hosting platforms, they don’t just share an article or link and leave you to figure things out on your own. They stay with you until your problem is solved.”

“The platform itself is incredible as well. Since moving my WordPress site to Kinsta, I have had no downtime and no unexplained white-outs. Their affordable plans allowed me to start small and upgrade as my number of enrolled students grew. I never worry about the hosting for my site.”
