Kinsta Is Boosting WordPress Performance for Everyone up to 200%

The performance of your WordPress sites has always been a top priority for our team. It’s one of the main reasons clients choose us today over our competitors, and we’ve proven this time and time again. We’re consistently one of the first in the industry to release the latest software such as PHP 7.4, and Review Signal has awarded us “top tier” performance five years in a row.

Kinsta was also the first managed WordPress host to utilize Google Cloud Platform (GCP) exclusively, and we keep a close eye on their newly released infrastructure. We’re always trying to push the boundaries, and today we’re taking it to a whole other level. We are excited to announce that we are moving to GCP’s next-generation compute-optimized virtual machines (C2).

We’ve developed our WordPress hosting platform to be completely scalable, from our Starter plans all the way up to our Enterprise plans. This means we aren’t just moving a select few to this new hardware or limiting their use to our higher-tier plans. We’re making the new GCP machines available for everyone at Kinsta. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a casual blogger or Fortune 500 company, you’re going to reap the benefits this change has to offer.

How exactly will this impact you? Over the past month, we’ve been testing these new machines internally and have been blown away by their performance. It varies based on the type of site, but we are seeing performance improvements from 30% all the way up to 200%!

Not only will you see faster load times, but you’ll probably also notice a difference in the responsiveness of your WordPress admin dashboard. For those of you working on your WordPress sites regularly, this should help make your workflow a little more enjoyable.

Our agency has worked with all the major hosting platforms. Kinsta is crazy fast and the support is stellar! We moved all our clients to Kinsta and haven’t looked back.

Kinsta’s Infrastructure and the New GCP Compute-Optimized VMs (C2)

For those of you who might not be familiar with our platform, it’s important to understand that it doesn’t fall into any of the traditional hosting categories. Our entire infrastructure is built on Google Cloud and is different from traditional shared, VPS, or dedicated infrastructure.

Every site on our platform runs in an isolated software container that contains all of the software resources required to run the site (Linux, Nginx, PHP, MySQL). This means that the software that runs each site is 100% private and is not shared even between your own sites. We use Linux containers as the underlying container
