Publishers Trust Kinsta
Hosting Infrastructure Optimized for Pro Publishers
- 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 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.
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.

Thousands of five-star ratings.
When we first migrated to Kinsta, the speed difference over our previous VPS was unbelievable. It’s been a treat to run our WordPress sites on Kinsta, with total confidence in everything they do to make WordPress run optimally. From caching, backups, and developer tools to their fast and reliable support. It allows us to focus on our business and not on the server, knowing we are in the best possible hands when it comes to managed WordPress hosting.
We truly cannot say enough about the level of customer service that Kinsta provides – it’s always a great experience, with very personable and helpful support.
Kinsta provides us with enormous relief in the daily routine of monitoring and maintaining a fast and secure WordPress website. There is no better feeling for our customers and us!
Great performance and the best technical support! Moved from WiredTree at which I experienced a lot of downtime since the acquisition. I’m amazed how my website’s performance drastically improved and is loading fast now. They do have the best support too. Specifically, the technical knowledge compared to the other hosting providers. Really glad I switched to Kinsta!
We love Kinsta! They’re no doubt one of the least negotiable expenses we have each month. Incredible speed and absolutely unbelievable support.
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.
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).
Maintaining many global WordPress sites, we’ve become well acquainted with all the major hosting providers. No one is running our sites as fast as Kinsta.
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, Kinsta is the best WordPress hosting provider I have come across after trying out heaps of hosting solutions for the past 10+ years. From speed, uptime, performance, CDN, UI, and backups to the migration, Kinsta has been beyond fantastic! Their professional customer support is simply impressive, and I couldn’t ask for more. I do not think I will ever be thinking of switching to another hosting provider, at least for many years to come!
Kinsta saves us time so that we can focus on building our business instead of worrying about hosting or downtime. It’s quick and easy to use, has good support, and the websites load quickly and have excellent uptime.
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.
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 2 minutes. This translates to 720 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.
