Kinsta WordPress Hosting

Slow Websites Suck. Don't Be Sucky.

Kinsta is my preferred vendor for hosting MyListing websites.

I trust Kinsta with my own websites and client websites that I manage.

Kinsta WordPress Hosting Features

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.

Kinsta does not offer discounts, but I 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.

MyListing websites require more resources when it comes to PHP and this is due to a number of factors.

  • MyListing websites are highly dynamic.
  • MyListing requires WooCommerce. 
  • MyListing requires Elementor.

You need a minimum of 4 PHP workers to run a MyListing website, which would cost you $100 per month on your own.

If you’re on the Club’s Kinsta plan, you will automatically get enterprise-level PHP workers (12 workers), which would cost you at least $1,200 per month on your own.

MyListing websites require more resources when it comes to PHP and this is due to a number of factors.

  • MyListing websites are highly dynamic.
  • MyListing requires WooCommerce. 
  • MyListing requires Elementor.

Unless you spend a minimum of $600 for a Kinsta Enterprise plan of your own, you will be limited to a max PHP memory allocation of 256M.

If you’re on the Club’s Kinsta plan, you will be able to request enterprise-level PHP allocations, using Kinsta’s support chat.

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.

Sometimes stuff just happens and when it does, you will have instant and direct access (24/7) to Kinsta’s premier support team, and I’m available during my normal business hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST).

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.
Kinsta’s Application Performance Monitoring (APM) tool lets you monitor and stay on top of the performance of your WordPress website.

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

Moving your site to Kinsta will not cause any downtime and their expert migration team takes care of everything for you.
Kinsta provides security certificates for free so your website is immediately and automatically secured going forward.

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.

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

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

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

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

There is no catch. I’m not here to trick you into buying something.

My goal has always been to help people obtain top-notch hosting that might be otherwise out of reach, giving every MyListing website project the best chance it has of succeeding.

Most likely nothing. The limits included in the Club’s plan are spread out amongst all the sites.

If any website is grossly exceeding the limits, it’s my job to monitor this and to keep it under control so that everyone on the plan has their 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 I monitor this a bit more closely. If/when a website starts to near the 5 GB Disk Space limit, I will reach out to see what we can do about clearing up some space, and you also have the option of purchasing extra disk space.

Absolutely not! Every website gets dedicated resources, remaining completely separate from all other websites on the Club’s plan.

Yes. You will get admin access to your own Kinsta dashboard and direct access to 24/7 Kinsta support.

All I’m doing here is helping you get a significant discount. 👍

Yes. Kinsta has partnered with Cloudflare, to bring their Enterprise plan (worth $200 /month per site) to every website hosted under Kinsta.

However, I recommend implementing a full Cloudflare account, rather than simply clicking on the ‘Enable Kinsta CDN’ button within your Kinsta dashboard.

Creating your own Cloudflare account gives you more control and more options to do more for your MyListing website.

No. Implementing a full Cloudflare account is a better option for managing your DNS, providing arguably the fastest DNS services available while giving you full control.

I’m not asking you to do anything I’m not doing myself, which is to say that I too set up a full Cloudflare account for every website I own.

Yes. The following add-ons are available, and as the hosting account owner, I will simply pass my costs from Kinsta on to you.

I’m not looking to make money off  “selling” these add-ons.

For example, if you buy the Redis Cache add-on for $100 per month, I’ll charge you $105 per month to cover my costs (Kinsta + Payment Processing Fees).

It depends. If you have a site that deals with CBD or any other content that might be deemed as “questionable”, it’s best to jump on a quick chat with Kinsta to get confirmation.

Please note that I cannot answer this question for you. Only Kinsta can.

 

Yes. Theoretically. 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 or 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 I can help you migrate, but there would be an hourly charge for helping you get your website over to Kinsta.

A deep scan of all site files occurs during the migration process and if it is determined that your website is infected, the migration will be paused and there are two options.

  1. Proceed with the migration, have Kinsta remove the infection, and a $100 malware removal fee may apply.
  2. Cancel the migration, work with a third party to repair the hacked website, and then reschedule the migration.

Please note that I do not offer services to fixed hacked websites. My recommendation is to just have Kinsta do the cleanup for you.

Your website will run in a highly secure environment, but if your website is ever compromised, it will be fixed by Kinsta’s support staff for no additional cost.

  • Inspection and deep scan of your website files to identify threats.
  • Repair of WordPress core by installing a clean copy of the core files.
  • Identification and removal of infected plugins and/or themes.
  • Reinstallation of the Parent WordPress Theme or Child Theme.

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

You always have direct access to Kinsta’s support, 24/7, their support is all you really ever need unless you are (or want to be) my client.

I maintain a policy of no refunds, due to the month-to-month, cancel anytime nature of this offering.

Nope. I’m a customer and advocate for the MyListing theme.

Great! The process is really simple and I’ve got your back!

  1. Sign up for the Club’s Kinsta WordPress Hosting plan.
  2. Follow the instructions in your order email to complete the Kinsta onboarding process.
  3. Cancel your old hosting account once you’re happy with your migration and enjoy a better-performing website!
