Kinsta WordPress Hosting

Hosting Is Not a Sexy Topic.

Your Website Speed Is.

Host. Better.

Our Preferred Hosting Vendor for WordPress Websites

Google Cloud Platform

Kinsta is powered by the Google Cloud Platform and its global data centers, where everything is interconnected over a premium tier network, designed to provide the fastest and most secure transport of your data.

Get Up to 50% OFF

Kinsta does not offer discounts, but we found a way to help the MyListing community save a ton of money on this industry-leading hosting solution, while also providing enterprise-level PHP workers.

Enterprise PHP Workers

MyListing websites are highly dynamic in nature, requiring more resources for PHP and database queries, and we are able to provide you with 12 PHP Workers (eCommerce websites require a minimum of 4), which would cost you $100 per month on your own.

Expert Support

Sometimes stuff just happens and when it does, you will have instant and direct access (24/7) to Kinsta's premier support team, and of course, we are available during business hours in the EST time zone should you have any questions related to the MyListing theme.

Crazy Fast Architecture

Kinsta uses state-of-the-art technology like Nginx, cutting-edge PHP versioning, LXD software containers, MariaDB, and compute-optimized VMs to make sure your website loads in the blink of an eye, with complete resource isolation, automatic scalability, and high availability.

Highly Secure Network

You get a secure firewall powered by Cloudflare, active and passive measures to stop attacks and malicious intent in its tracks, continuous monitoring for uptime, DDoS protection and mitigation, software-based restrictions, SSL support, and hardware firewalls.

Admin Access

You get full access to your hosting panel, which means you are not locked into anything, and you are free to leave at any point.

Robust Backups

Your entire website is automatically backed up for you every day and there are additional options for creating backups on demand.

Staging Site

You can clone your production website so you can try new things, troubleshoot issues, provide access to support, and more.

Modern Dashboard

Say goodbye to clunky, dated, cPanels and say hello to a simplified, yet very powerful interface for managing your website.

Malware Removal

If your website gets hacked, the Kinsta support will remove all threats, for no additional cost, so you can confidently run your business.

Free Migrations

Moving your site to Kinsta will not cause any downtime and their expert migration team takes care of everything for you.

SSL Certificate

Kinsta provides security certificates for free so your website is immediately and automatically secured going forward.

Cloudflare CDN

Kinsta's Cloudflare integration gives you a complete suite of technologies and tools to have a faster and more secure website.

Get More. Save More. With Us as Your Kinsta Partner.

There is no catch. We are not here to trick you into buying something. 

We are simply helping our clients obtain top-notch hosting that might be otherwise out of reach, giving every 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.

Our Kinsta plan includes:

  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Up to 50% OFF
  • Enterprise PHP Workers (12)
  • Expert Support
  • Crazy Fast Architecture
  • Highly Secure Network
  • Admin Access
  • Robust Backups
  • Staging Site
  • Modern Dashboard
  • Malware Removal
  • Free Migrations
  • SSL Certificate
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • 20,000 Monthly Visits
  • 5 GB SSD Storage

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.

Monthly Visits
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.

No problem, everything we offer is scalable, so feel free to reach out to us so we can discuss your needs.

You also have admin access to your website, so you can migrate your website at any time, and if you’re staying within the Kinsta family, it’s as simple as a 5-minute accounting change to get you on your own account.

Yes. You will get admin access to your own Kinsta dashboard.

 

No. We do not allow access to Kinsta’s DNS and that is actually to your benefit, as Kinsta’s Cloudflare integration is a better option for handling your DNS, providing 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.

Trust us…we are not keeping you from anything special here.

No. We do not allow access to Kinsta’s CDN and that is actually to your benefit, as Kinsta’s Cloudflare integration is a better CDN option, and will be the only option here soon.

Trust us…we are not keeping you from anything special here.

Yes. 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.

Yes. Theoretically. However, it is not a pretty scenario and that’s due to the limitations of WordPress.com rather than Kinsta.

From 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.

Absolutely! While Kinsta is your first line of support for issues related to hosting, we do offer WordPress Website Care plans and WordPress Website Support where we can work directly with Kinsta on your behalf.

You always have full access to Kinsta’s support, so it’s business as usual.

Our Premium Asset Library is available to anyone covered under a WordPress Website Care plan.

The process is really simple and we have your back! If you’re already a Kinsta customer, the process is even easier, with a quick account swap and zero downtime.

  1. Sign up for our Kinsta WordPress Hosting plan.
  2. 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.
  3. Cancel your old hosting account once you’re happy with your migration and enjoy your better-performing website!

"WP Turned UP has been an indispensable resource for my business.

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."

"Wow, where to start?

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."

"Thank you, WP Turned UP for helping me scale my business while saving money at the same time.

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."

"Having found WP Turned UP after a few other stop/starts on a website project, I would highly recommend them for building and maintaining sites.

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."

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!"

"I cannot say enough about Ryan with WP Turned UP and his services.

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 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 highly recommend working with WP Turned UP! "

"WP Turned UP has made my “weblife” so much easier.

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."

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.

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!

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
  • 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

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.

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.

DNS

Cloudflare is a better option for handling your DNS, as it provides arguably the fastest DNS services available.

CDN

Cloudflare’s FREE plan is often the only CDN provider a website owner needs.

No.

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.

No.

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.

Yes.

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.

Yes. Theoretically.

However, it is not a pretty scenario and that’s due to the limitations of WordPress.com rather than Kinsta.
