The web hosting industry is unfortunately full of fake reviews because affiliates will say anything to get you to sign up with one of their partners to earn a hefty commission. This makes it really hard to select a hosting company that you can trust. Check out some independent reviews of Kinsta around the web that are as unbiased as possible. Nothing shows off Kinsta better than our own clients!

“Kinsta’s Performance Was Top Tier” – Review Signal

Kevin Ohashi from Review Signal recently published an independent review of 26 different WordPress hosting companies‘ performance. Response time, load testing and uptime were the main focus of this article that took months to complete and I’m happy to say that Kinsta was one of the best-performing companies (if not the best!).

It’s not a surprise that most large shared hosts have problems with traffic waves – after all, that’s why WordPress specialized hosting companies were born in the first place – but as you can clearly see from the results many of these premium hosts had troubles too. Hosts such as Pantheon, Cloudways, and Dreamhost all struggled on certain tests.

Kinsta had a perfect run at the Enterprise tier. This is why people shell out top dollar for Enterprise level hosting. Kinsta had perfect 100% uptime on both monitors. They also had 0 errors on both load tests and the lowest peak response time on the Load Storm test. A Top Tier Performance was rightly earned. – Review Signal

“Kinsta stuck out as a reader favorite this year!” – WPShout

Another site that’s famous for doing a survey of “honest, unbiased thoughts from hundreds of real WordPress site owners” is WPShout. During the one month period while the survey was open this year they received about 160 entries, then the creators of WPShout, Fred Meyer and David Hayes, took the time to evaluate each and every one of the entries and created a detailed report. Check out the 2014 survey.

One thing is clear from the results: we truly do our best to make sure all of our clients are satisfied and this is clearly reflected in the results. That and our outstanding server performance:

Kinsta: “Extremely fast hosting. The control panel and some of the functionality are not 100% finished just yet, though.” “They truly work hard to ensure that the site is up and running, that it’s running fast and that I can get help with any issues related to hosting.” “The support is very responsive which largely makes up for the poor admin area.” “Fastest I’ve experienced, especially in the admin areas of two heavily modified WP sites.” “Blazing.”

WPShout conducted their annual survey again in 2016. We scored a 9.7/10.0 beating the likes of WP Engine, Pagely, Digital Ocean, Flywheel, GoDaddy, MediaTemple, and all EIG owned brands. Other scores included 9.8 for value, 9.7 for reliability, 9.8 for speed, and a whopping 9.9 for support. We’re working hard to deliver on support, performance, and overall satisfaction, and it’s nice to see data reflecting that.

They collected data in 8 major areas, including satisfaction, value, reliability, speed, support, median site count, usability, and WordPress compatibility. For example, average satisfaction for all hosts was 8.8 compared to our 9.7 score. To no surprise, the largest hosts were among those to score the worst. Our high-end boutique philosophy of focusing on WordPress sites & customers that have high traffic seems to be paying off.

Kinsta survey results

Kinsta: “Kinsta allowed me to shut down many expensive VPS and hosting accounts and consolidate under 1 account at lower cost and much higher stability.” “The best host is the one you almost don’t even know about. I can almost forget where my blogs are hosted: they are fast, 100% available, and I don’t have to do anything.”
