I’m the Chief Marketing Officer at Kinsta. I have a huge passion for WordPress, SEO, and web performance. I also blog over at woorkup, and help develop a few premium WordPress plugins.
When I’m not working, I enjoy watching sci-fi-movies, playing Rocket League, and try to go hiking every chance I get.
Kinsta is a premium managed WordPress host, powered exclusively by Google Cloud Platform. Whether you have a small blog or large and dynamic e-Commerce site, we can help take your business to the next level. We love working with developers and WordPress agencies and are proud to have helped some of the biggest names in the industry, such as GE, Intuit, Buffer, MariaDB, and TripAdvisor.
*What makes Kinsta Different*
At Kinsta, our primary focus is providing three things:
World-Class Support: The hosting industry is broken when it comes to support, and we have aimed to fix this. We don’t have different level tiers of support reps. Our entire support team is made up of WordPress developers and Linux hosting engineers. Every Kinsta client gets to chat with the same team members that support our large enterprise and Fortune 500 companies.
"Emergency support" This shouldn’t be a term when it comes to managed WordPress hosting. At Kinsta, you get 24×7 support, 365 days a year via our live chat system. Your website should always be mission-critical, not when it's already gone down.
Superior performance: Kinsta uses the latest and greatest technology, such as Nginx, PHP 7, and MariaDB. We include Google Cloud Platform’s premium tier network (not standard) in all plans. We have 18+ data centers you can choose from to host your WordPress sites. Placing it closest to your visitors/customers helps decrease TTFB/latency.
We push out the latest versions of PHP a few weeks after their official release (many times we even allow you to test beta versions). We want you to be able to take full advantage of the substantial performance increases that new versions of PHP have to offer.
MySQL databases are hosted at localhost, not a remote server. This ensures that there is no latency between machines, which results in faster queries and quicker page load times. And of course, we include an HTTP/2 CDN with 35+ POPs around the globe to ensure all of your assets are serving from lightning-fast cache.
Scalability: Kinsta utilizes LXD managed hosts and orchestrated LXC software containers for each site. What this means is that every WordPress site is housed in its own isolated container, which has all of the software resources required to run it (Linux, Nginx, PHP, MySQL). The resources are 100% private and are not shared between anyone else or even your own sites.
This guarantees security by design and autoscaling for high-traffic sites. Kinsta is used to working with demanding and high-traffic sites that consistently get thousands of concurrent visitors/millions of visitors per month/day.

Hi Brian, how did you find Kinsta or Kinsta found you? 🙂September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4021Andrew KillenGuest
Brian, people like Bobby and Patrick admire greatly what you do. can you give more background on your stack, and why it good?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4022Cameron BarrettGuest
Do you offer a discount for non-profits? Or for agencies that host non-profit web sites?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4023Istiak RayhanGuest
Hi Brian, we have launched a plugin for Gutenberg Editor recently. As an owner of some popular WP plugins, can you give us some tips how we can promote our new plugin?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4024Nazar HotsaGuest
You’re saying you’re using nginx in your stack. Have you ever considered things like OpenLiteSpeed or any other alternatives? Does nginx indeed show the best results among competitors?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4025Cameron BarrettGuest
Have you ever considered a server-side solution (Imagemagick?) that can crunch file sizes of images, PDFs, etc. so the end users aren’t forced to do the work or rely on things like Smush or Imsanity. It could, of course be an opt-in solution for sites, just a CDN is.September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4026Akshat ChoudharyGuest
Brian Jackson What does your typical day as CMO of Kinsta look like? Do you still get to work on content?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4027Hubert NguyenGuest
Hello, if I want to use mongoDB alongside my WP, is that possible? (Do you install the MongoDB PHP drivers)September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4028Mark WilliamsGuest
I switched to Kinsta recently and only then discovered the 2 php worker limit. Given that I have a small Woocommerce site, it was immediately recommended I move to the $200 per month plan. I’m surprised that is the recommended entry point for an e-commerce site. Thoughts?September 30, 2019 at 3:16 pm #4029Marcus KrämerGuest
