Kinsta WordPress Hosting

Hosting Is Not 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.

Modern Dashboard

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.

Powerful Analytics

Your dashboard lets you track important data for each of your sites separately; such as visitors, bandwidth usage, response times, and more.

Instant Support

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.

We provide support for those covered under a Website Care Plan plan or for those that have purchased Website Support time with us.

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.

Simple! 

For most assets, the steps below will be followed.

  1. Let us know which Premium Assets you would like.
  2. Provide us with a temporary, WordPress admin account.
  3. 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
Nothing will stop working and you will get to keep your Premium Assets, but you will no longer receive updates or support for those assets.

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 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.

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.

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.

  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!

"Thank you, Ryan and the Online Directory Network for helping me scale my business while saving money at the same time.

Transferring our website to the Network'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 Online Directory Network are always quick to respond and help me with any issues or questions that I have.

The Online Directory Network is a must-have resource for building and growing an online directory quickly and easily."
