FAQs

What are the requirements for WordPress Multisite hosting?

At Kinsta, the multisite option can be enabled on Pro plans or higher, they are not available on the Starter plan. Multisite is often resource-intensive and requires additional PHP workers included on Pro plans and higher.

Is there a limit to how many sites (subsites) we can host on a multisite install?

There is no fixed limit to the number of subsites that can be set up on a multisite network. The number of websites that can run smoothly depends on a complex mix of factors including how much CPU, RAM and PHP worker resources are consumed by your sites. This varies by plugins, themes, and code structure. Contact sales for assistance in choosing or configuring a plan.

Can each subsite be in a different one of Kinsta’s data centers?

No. A WordPress multisite is one install and can only be located in one of our 37 data centers. If you needs sites in multiple data centers you’ll need multiple plans.

Does Multisite count as one WP install?

Yes, it does.

How do I set up a WordPress Multisite?

When starting a new site within MyKinsta it’s as easy as checking a box to enable it. Doing it manually involves making wp-config.php changes as well as some other edits to WordPress PHP files. Learn more on this article.

Can I use the Selective Push from the staging environment feature for a Multisite setup?

Yes, if you are on a subdirectory or subdomain multisite setup. When using domain-mapping some manual work will be needed. Learn more on our Docs.

Are each site’s visits counted the same way on Multisite?

Yes since a multisite install is still a single WordPress install on a container, any unique visits to the site(s) on that container count towards the visits.

How does domain mapping work with Kinsta DNS?

WordPress handles the heavy lifting on which site will load when the incoming request happens. Simply add the domain to the site in MyKinsta and we will send the traffic to your container and WordPress will load the proper site as long as you have added that site to the Network of sites in the WordPress Dashboard.
