Kinsta WordPress Hosting
Hosting Isn't a Sexy Topic.
Your Website Speed Is.
Our Preferred Hosting Vendor for WordPress Websites.
Kinsta continues to be our recommended website hosting vendor for website owners that want all the bells and whistles but with a simplicity that allows you to focus on building your business.
While Kinsta doesn’t offer discounts, we always wondered if there was something we could do to help our clients save money and get more for what they were paying for.
We are excited that we’ve found a way to make this a reality!
What is Kinsta Hosting?
Kinsta is a managed WordPress hosting provider that helps take care of all your needs regarding your website and they run their services on cutting-edge technology and take support seriously.
Say goodbye to clunky, dated, cPanels and create SSL certificates, manage your staging environment, use the built-in find and replace tool, etc., with a simplified, yet very powerful interface.
Your dashboard lets you track important data for each of your sites separately; such as visitors, bandwidth usage, response times, and more.
Have an issue? No problem. Simply pop open the support chat right from your dashboard and a professional will be there to assist…instantly!
Get More. Save More. With Us as Your Kinsta Partner.
We provide enterprise-level Kinsta hosting for less money than the entry-level plan, and we further the partnership with you by providing premium assets
There is no catch.
We are not here to trick you into buying something.
This is us helping our clients get top-notch hosting that might be otherwise out of reach for some.
Our goal is to give each website project the best chance it has of succeeding.
Your website will live on a dedicated server, which, in our experience (and after lots of research), is quite literally the best-managed WordPress hosting available.
Though entirely customizable, the hosting package in our listed plans includes:
- Up to 50% OFF per website
- Premium Assets
- 20,000 Monthly Visits
- 5 GB SSD Storage
- SSL certificate
- Cutting Edge Versions of PHP
- 12 PHP workers. (Note: Having more than 4 PHP workers is critical to WooCommerce websites. To get 12 PHP workers on your own, you would need to sign up for an Enterprise-level plan.).
- Staging environment
- Security Assurance
- 24/7 Support from top-tier professionals
The Premium Assets we provide are fully licensed, so our members will automatically get software updates released by the vendors.
Each plugin can be licensed on a single website.
While support for these assets isn’t directly available from the vendor, clients that are covered under a qualifying WordPress Website Care plan or have WordPress Website Support can request support directly from our team.
There is also a good chance you can get FREE support using our Facebook group.
Note: Customers that are covered under a qualifying Care Plan, Build Hours, or Support Hours, can request support directly from our team.
There are also many FREE channels, such as Facebook Groups, where you can get support.
IMPORTANT: We are only responsible for delivering and licensing the assets, so anything outside of that is your responsibility and we reserve the right to not offer individuals these Premium Assets if there is any hassle whatsoever.
For most assets, the steps below will be followed.
- Let us know which Premium Assets you would like.
- Provide us with a temporary, WordPress admin account.
- We’ll install and/or license the asset for you.
However, with some assets, the process is easier yet. Domain Name Activation Method All we need is your domain name and we can provide you with a “shortened” version of the key so that no login is required.
- Permalink Manager Pro
Plugin Distribution Activation Method All we need is to share an asset with you via a downloadable link and it will be licensed for you.
- WP Rocket
Most likely nothing.
As the limits included in our plan are spread out amongst all the sites and not a single website on our plan is coming anywhere close to using the limits.
If any website is grossly exceeding the limits, it is our job to monitor this and to keep it under control so that everyone on the plan has its hosting investment protected.
Let’s say a website or even multiple websites start going over their monthly visit limit. No problem! It’s going to average out.
Monthly visits should never be an issue, but if it is, that’s actually good news, as that means there are some businesses doing exceptionally well in terms of traffic.
If/when a website starts to near the 20,000 visit limit, we will reach out to see if this traffic is legitimate and take additional steps if needed.
Disk Space Usage
This is a bit different than Monthly Visits, in that Disk Space Usage typically just increases, so we monitor this a bit more closely.
If/when a website starts to near the 5 GB Disk Space limit, we will reach out to see what we can do about clearing up some space.
Everything we offer is scalable, so feel free to reach out to us so we can discuss your needs.
You also have full access to your website, so you can migrate your website at any time.
If you’re staying within the Kinsta family, we offer Free migrations when our affiliate link is used.
Yes and No.
All sites will be under our account, which is partially how we are able to provide such deep discounts.
Most everything stays the same as far as what you’re able to do, with the exception of using Kinsta’s DNS and CDN.
We do not allow either of these and that is actually to your benefit.
Cloudflare is a better option for handling your DNS, as it provides arguably the fastest DNS services available.
Cloudflare’s FREE plan is often the only CDN provider a website owner needs.
We do not allow access to Kinsta’s DNS and that is actually to your benefit.
Cloudflare is a better option for handling your DNS, as it provides arguably the fastest DNS services available.
Using your own DNS provider, gives you full control, whereas, with Kinsta’s DNS, we would have to be involved in the management of your DNS, which neither of us should want.
The Kinsta CDN isn’t a reverse proxy/WAF and it doesn’t always do a great job of filtering out bad bots or malicious traffic.
Therefore, using the Kinsta CDN will typically not help reduce bad traffic to your site.
This means the visits to your site will be higher than if you used a reverse proxy/WAF solution such as Cloudflare.
We recommend signing up for Cloudflare’s FREE plan, which includes benefits above and beyond just CDN services.
All you would need to do is leave our plan and purchase your own plan, which is a super easy and fast accounting change on the Kinsta side of things, so there is no downtime to worry about.
However, it is not a pretty scenario and that’s due to the limitations of WordPress.com rather than Kinsta.
Migrating WordPress.com Sites
For WordPress.com migrations, we cannot do a traditional migration because WordPress.com does not allow access to the site files nor the database. We are only able to export your WordPress content such as posts, pages, comments, meta tags, etc and import them into a new WordPress installation on our platform.
The above does not include moving over your WordPress theme, any of your WordPress plugins, or any other customizations that you might have made over at WordPress.com. This means that your site will not look exactly as it does at WordPress.com
After the migration, you or your web developer will need to re-install the theme and plugins and make any customizations again that you made at WordPress.com so that your site will match exactly.
So, what does all this mean exactly?
It means we can help you migrate, but there would be an hourly charge for helping you get your website over to Kinsta.
The process is really simple and we’ve got your back!
If you’re already a Kinsta customer, the process is even easier, with a quick account swap and zero downtime.
- Sign up for our Kinsta WordPress Hosting plan.
- Use our website’s chat feature to let us know when you would like to migrate your website and we’ll gather some info from you.
- Cancel your old hosting account once you’re happy with your migration and enjoy your better-performing website!
From their quick responses in the early days of simple learning about the MyListing theme all the way up to helping me launch my startup to paid subscribers.
And beyond! I’ve worked with them for nearly a year on my website and they have been supportive to the point that I consider them part of my team.
They truly understand the entrepreneurial mindset, have creative solutions to problems, and are always quick and punctual with tasks.
If you’re building a MyListing website, you’re not going to find better people to work with who know more about the theme than them.
They are a master at it."
The WP Turned UP team has been amazing.
I was having so many problems with my hosting and slow service even though I had a business hosting account that was meant to be fast.
They stepped in, asked me a few questions, and then took over.
We moved my hosting to Kinsta, implemented an image optimization solution, and a few other bits.
The speed and functionality of my website drastically turned around and I'm more comfortable with marketing the site without embarrassment.
WP Turned UP's communication and help has been invaluable and their knowledge is amazing.
I'm looking forward to carrying on working with them and have already recommended them to a few people.
I encourage anyone to use their services."
It was such a smooth process, explained and executed efficiently and they know their stuff.
We look forward to working with them again in the future."
They are responsive, efficient, creative, and cutting edge in all of their web design and marketing projects for our firm.
I enjoy working with them and consistently look for more ways we can utilize their talents."
Transferring our website to the WP Turned UP's Kinsta hosting plan was extremely easy.
Trying to get the plugins and hosting on my own would easily have cost 10 times more.
Kinsta and WP Turned UP are always quick to respond and help me with any issues or questions that I have.
WP Turned UP and the MyListing theme is the powerhouse combo that everyone needs to build and grow their online directory quickly and easily."
We tried other hosting sites but by far the best performance for value came from Kinsta and WP Turned UP.
Onboarding was easy and support was quick to respond to any issues we had.
They have provided terrific customer service, demonstrated detailed technical knowledge, and go above and beyond with every detail.
From our precise project plan in the beginning to their straightforward contract, they are consummate professionals.
WP Turned UP's ability to explain complex technical concepts to the average computer user is an extraordinary skill, as is their level of patience with someone just learning the ropes.
I would recommend their services for your project and would be happy to answer any questions.
My new website is beautiful and functional which is important to attracting members and building my user community."
Amazing turnaround and even more amazing results; their work has given us confidence in our website speed, performance, and reliability.
Their communication is impeccable and expertise is second to none.
WP Turned UP is an invaluable asset to our business and we are delighted to continue working with them!"
I was having some issues I simply couldn't work through and contacted them for help.
They persuaded me to rethink my approach to several elements of my membership site, and before I knew it I was getting results like this without removing any functionality from my home page."
They helped me fix the issue immediately and even took the time to improve some of the other settings for me.
Really excellent at what they do!"
My friend was like wow...it looks like you had really found a great team supporting your project!
And yes, that is how I feel, from technical questions, to design and all the things that involve starting a MyListing website from zero, the process always has been outstanding!
Fast communication, fast delivery, and the best of all...very reliable.
My online business is up and running, and this would have never happened if I tried to learn and do it all myself.
You need to delegate things, so you can move faster.
Worth every single dollar!"
They have been fully supportive and incredibly knowledgeable to help guide us through some of the pitfalls and ensure we were successful.
They go the extra mile to guarantee I deliver the best experience for my customer as well as a great end product.
Would highly recommend."
I was at the end of my rope and ready to pull the plug on my MyListing Directory because of issues that I did not know how to fix.
People, I hired only made it worse.
Someone recommended Ryan and I am SO glad they did.
From the minute I reached out to Ryan he let me know what was going to be done and what it would cost.
He responded immediately and has stayed in touch every step of the way.
What a relief!
We set everything up on a task board and he knocked out every issue one by one in no time.
Buying blocks of time allows him to dig in and find out what is wrong and correct.
He is very knowledgeable so it does not take him long to get things sorted out.
I'm now on a MyListing Website Care plan and I have such peace of mind knowing he is monitoring the site and will handle any hiccups.
I have so much confidence in Ryan that I’ve hired him to take the site to the next level with SEO.
HIGHLY Recommend! "
I felt so comfortable with them designing and recreating my business.
They pushed me over the edge, made me jump in, and take risks that I normally would not take.
I'm so happy that they pushed.
They are extremely talented, and you can tell they have kind hearts. I would recommend you guys all day!!"
They listened to me and were able to create my vision into reality within the capabilities of MyListing.
I am not very tech-savvy, but they were helpful in providing different options that I can look into for the goals that I am trying to reach, including increasing my income streams.
I highly recommend working with WP Turned UP! "
I have, in the past, found myself explaining system requirements or user functionality time and time again until I’ve just given up, but not with WP Turned UP though.
WP Turned UP is not just geeky techies., they live in the real world.
When you say you need X, they know why you need it, what it should look like, and may also suggest a Y to go with it.
They see it and talk about it from a user perspective rather than a technical one.
WP Turned UP has helped me with various website challenges and have always exceeded expectation.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to beginners and experts alike."
They are a joy to work with, extremely efficient, and I would recommend their services to businesses of any size and industry.
WP Turned UP is truly a valuable asset for any business."
I really appreciate them for being able to not only understand the technical parts but also seeing the bigger picture at all times.
As a digital marketer, it is important to only work with people who fully understand what you do - even for website optimization.
I am happy that I finally found an agency that I can trust and rely on.
Now I can finally focus on my main business again!"
WP Turned UP has now taken over the maintenance and has drastically turned things around for us within just a few days.
Having someone who understands, not just reacts, has made the world of difference for us!"
