Hosting Infrastructure Optimized for Pro Publishers

Google cloud c2 machines
  • Local news websites, large national publications, and news outlets websites need to be available all the time and load fast, even on mobile devices. That’s why you need a hosting platform like Kinsta, which can provide your site with blazing speed and security at any level.
  • Our entire infrastructure is built on Google Cloud Platform’s fastest C2 and C3D virtual machines and is completely different from the traditional shared, VPS, or dedicated infrastructure hosting setup. 
  • This makes Kinsta one of the fastest WordPress hosting solutions available and gives you access to all the tools we have built to specifically power and manage your busy publishing website.

Cloudflare Security Features and Free Global CDN
Your savings: $200/mo. per site

All Kinsta plans include enterprise-level Cloudflare integration free of charge which comes with the fastest CDN and advanced security solutions. 

This means you can spend less time worrying about the performance and security of your site, and more on publishing the content your readers crave. Did we mention you save $200/mo with this enterprise-level Cloudflare integration?

Firewall and DDoS Protection

Kinsta leverages Cloudflare’s secure firewall to protect customer sites. 

The IP-based firewall we provide from the Google Cloud Platform firewall, allows us to block malicious traffic with specific rulesets.

Cloudflare integration also includes free DDoS protection that protects your site at all times.

Fast and Built-In CDN

The Kinsta CDN is powered by Cloudflare’s global network in over 200 cities across the globe.

This gives you an ultra-fast CDN solution for your website and allows Kinsta to serve assets from your primary domain.

Gone are the days of dealing with complicated setups that involve external CDN domains.

HTTP/3 Support

Since we put our infrastructure behind Cloudflare, it means that HTTP/3 support is now available for sites hosted at Kinsta.

If you host your website at Kinsta, you don’t have to worry about configuring your server for HTTP/3 support.

Wildcard SSL Support

Wildcard SSLs are fully supported.

A wildcard SSL is very useful for a site with several subdomains. 

Oftentimes publishing sites have several different subdomains, we make it easy for you to implement Wildcard SSL across your sites!

All of these features and more are built directly into the MyKinsta dashboard, our custom-built dashboard for site management. You don’t need to create a separate Cloudflare account. However, if you already have a Cloudflare account, that will stay separate.

Kinsta also reserves IPs for its customers. All IP addresses are unique to Kinsta so your website will not be shared by any adult or spam sites that lie outside the Kinsta infrastructure.

Site Management Made Easy

Kinsta utilizes Google Cloud’s Premium Tier Network with all of our managed WordPress hosting plans. This minimizes distance and hops, resulting in faster, more secure global transport of user data.

This means users can take advantage of the global fiber network, with globally distributed Points of Presence and 30% improved latency or 50% better bandwidth.

We also have our entire infrastructure on C2 and C3D VMs. Whether your publishing website is in North America, Europe, or Asia, there is a C-series region close to your site users providing high performing machines.

Everything we build at Kinsta is designed to provide you with a faster, more secure, easier-to-manage website. 

Their MyKinsta dashboard, reporting, instant backups, and staging environments save them hundreds of hours a year on admin tasks. This way, we can focus more on our clients.

Performance Monitoring Tool

Kinsta gives users a free, built-in, custom-developed, performance monitoring tool that can be used to pinpoint all of your WordPress performance issues in minutes

Your in-house developers will have a fast and easy way to find bottlenecks and fix slow pages and sections of your website.

Website Backups

The importance of daily automatic backups can’t be overstated. This is especially true when you have 5-10 or more editors working on hundreds of articles and things can go wrong.

Kinsta backups provide you with a complete snapshot of a site environment’s files, database, redirects, and Nginx configuration at the time the backup was created. 

This means that when you restore a backup, all changes to the website’s files, database, redirects, and Nginx configuration are rolled back to the time the backup was created.

At Kinsta, we take website backups and disaster recovery seriously. Our infrastructure has multiple redundancies in place to keep your data safe and secure. These include:

Automatic Snapshots of Every Site

Kinsta creates snapshots of every WordPress site every 24 hours, 6 hours, or hourly, depending on the options you select. You can use these to restore your site in one click from the MyKinsta dashboard.

Machine Level Snapshots

Kinsta also creates and stores persistent disk snapshots of every machine in our infrastructure every 8 hours for 24 hours. This means that if your website snapshots were ever unusable for any reason we would have snapshots of our entire infrastructure we could use to restore your data.

Downloadable Backups

Are automatic backups and redundant backups not enough? We go a step further and allow you the ability to download a backup of your WordPress site anytime. The archive file (.zip) generated from the MyKinsta dashboard will contain your website’s files as well as the SQL file containing the contents of your database. You can then store these somewhere safe to act as yet another backup.

External Backups (Add-On)

Kinsta provides the external backups feature for weekly or monthly backups as an add-on you can enable when needed as an additional security measure. This means you don’t have to install any third-party plugins or additional tools. 

And, if all that still isn’t enough, rest assured that we monitor the uptime of all sites that we host every 3 minutes. This translates to 480 checks for each of your sites every day. Our support team is also available 24/7 for anything you need.

Utilizing the Google Cloud Platform

One of the biggest cloud computing providers in the world. Not only do they have state-of-the-art data centers designed to withstand disasters, but they are recognized as some of the most energy-efficient and secure in the world.
