You are sabotaging your WooCommerce website by using Kinsta
Fun fact #1: WooCommerce REQUIRES 512MB of PHP memory. Not-so-fun fact #2: Kinsta standard plans come with 256MB of PHP memory. (Yes that is half of what WooCommerce REQUIRES to function properly.) Not-so-fun fact #3: When you become aware of this the awesome support team will recommend that you upgrade to an agency account that comes with 512MB of PHP memory. Not-so-fun fact #4: Your request to upgrade will be declined if you do not have a website that says you are an agency. Bottom line: You are not paying a premium price for premium hosting. You are paying an extortionate rate to sabotage your WooCommerce website. Don't do it.

Many promises, very poor result.
Many promises, to be the fastest and best wp hosting. I started with the business pack 1, tested, asked for help. Quick response times, that started out well, I thought. But as soon as our site was live, the troubles began, slow load times and very slow backend. So I needed some more php workers. But then you need to upgrade to a more expensive plan. 3 times more expensive!!! Crazy! If I knew this in advance I rather stayed with our other host. We never had these issues there. It saved me a whole week of work.

Totally overpriced and NOT reliable!
Totally overpriced. Instead of reliable hosting our site was down for a while. They make update so your wp doesn’t function without any notification. Support not helpful at all, only standard messages. STAY AWAY!

Kinsta WordPress vs Nexcess FAQ
Kinsta is a managed cloud hosting platform for WordPress, databases, and applications. It supplies hosting and site management tools for website owners.
Kinsta only offers WordPress support; they cannot help with anything outside of the WordPress application realm. Their platform is not optimized for other PHP-based applications. Nexcess offers comprehensive application and technical support for many PHP-based applications, including WordPress, WooCommerce, and Magento. Our platform is compatible with almost any PHP-based application.
Yes, Nexcess can host your database on a dedicated server. Our flexible cloud plans and single server solutions (SIP plans), can keep your databases fast, protected, and optimized.
The Kinsta platform is tailored to the needs of developers, agencies, and anyone involved with the nuts and bolts of running a WordPress website. Brands using Kinsta to host at least one domain include Skillcrush, ELCOME, and Tripadvisor.
Because Kinsta uses Google Cloud to host your website, it is more of a managed platform than managed hosting. The platform is the primary appeal; as it has WordPress-specific features and benefits. Nexcess, in contrast, is a managed applications host. We offer similar features to Kinsta, but add a WordPress application emphasis to your site’s servers, front end, and back end. We do this with a wide range of performance enhancements, developer-friendly tools, and a wider scope of WordPress application support. Nexcess also includes plugins and themes to optimize the front end.
Kinsta pricing ranges from $35/mo to $1,650/mo (or higher). Kinsta is expensive for the resources they provide. Medium to large websites with high-resolution images, dynamic pages, and video content will likely need add-ons like Redis and Nginx reverse proxy to maximize site speed. And websites with a high page volume will likely need additional storage — which ranges from $20/mo or a plan upgrade. The total average of upgrade costs at Kinsta is $192 dollars. So, even if you start off with the $35/mo Kinsta plan, your monthly costs will likely be higher. Nexcess offers more sites on every plan, storage, PHP workers, free migrations, and bandwidth at a lower price than Kinsta.
Yes, Nexcess offers dedicated cloud options on WordPress Executive and Enterprise plans. Dedicated cloud options are available for WooCommerce Growth and Enterprise plans. Nexcess dedicated cloud hosting offers more capacity at a lower price than Kinsta. We also offer dedicated bare metal hosting, Kinsta does not.
