This is one of my favorite features. If you have a website hosted elsewhere and are interested in bringing it to Kinsta, they will migrate the site for you – at no charge!
The great thing about this offer is that they don’t limit you to one migration at no cost. You can bring over multiple sites and not pay a dime.
That being said, there are some caveats:
- This has to be for a WordPress website (or multisite network).
- It needs to be an existing site hosted on another platform (Kinsta doesn’t help with locally-hosted sites).
Website Speed: Kinsta uses Google Cloud Platform and SSD storage to give your website a boost in speed. In addition, you can choose the closest server location to you so that latency is reduced.
Kinsta also has caching built-in to their platform (which helps speed up your site further) but what’s really nice about this is that it works with both WordPress and WooCommerce sites.
The automatic and manual cache purge features are also included with each plan, which helps to ensure you get the fastest load times possible.
Last but certainly not least, they include a free CDN (Content Delivery Network) with every plan and setup with MaxCDN by default.
CDNs improve page load times by serving cached copies of your site’s static content from servers around the world based on a visitor’s location, making sure that users get the fastest possible load times no matter where they are located.
Together, all these features mean that Kinsta will provide an awesome speed advantage over other hosts!
Support is fantastic. I’m a big fan of Kinsta, but if you’re considering them, don’t just take my word for it. Take a look at the Kinsta Trustpilot ratings and read the reviews for yourself. There’s also a ton of great feedback on Twitter.
You don’t see many other hosting companies with this level of support or customer service:
- Knowledgeable and very responsive—24/7/365
- Dedicated support manager (you get to know your main point of contact)
- Great customer service! They’re not just there to fix problems, they’re always looking to make things better
Like most managed WordPress hosts, Kinsta has a robust suite of security features.
Your website will be protected by an advanced firewall, which is updated daily. Your data will also be regularly scanned for malware with Sucuri’s tools and if anything is detected, you’ll receive an email alert. You can then remove it yourself or ask the Kinsta team to do it for you.
In addition to its regular security tools, Kinsta takes extra precautions against DDoS attacks (the aim of which is to overload your site with requests until it crashes). It uses auto-scaling technology that makes it able to handle any spike in traffic without slowing down your site.
In terms of encryption, all websites are secured by SSL certificates and have HTTP/2 enabled on their servers. Kinsta also lets you choose between PHP 5.6, 7 or 7.3 (the latest update) for your website – whatever works best for you!
If you’re looking to host a website with a high volume of traffic, you should look into a hosting provider that offers scalability.
A scalable hosting provider like Kinsta allows your website to be hosted on an infrastructure that can handle more traffic as it comes in
In other words, if your site hits the limit of its current plan’s bandwidth and storage space, that plan will scale up so that your site can continue running smoothly.
