Kinsta and SiteGround are the two best hosts in WordPress. They’re also very different. Which one’s right for you? We’ll make it easy:
1. You’re not highly budget-conscious.
Kinsta will cost quite a bit more than SiteGround as your traffic scales, but for larger projects both are cheap enough not to worry.
2. You’re focused on well-optimized WordPress hosting.
As WordPress’s best managed host, Kinsta outperforms SiteGround on speed, even on a per-dollar basis.
3. Your site earns revenue that would grow with speed.
Many online stores profit from an even slightly faster site. Many small-business or personal sites may not.
4. You’re pretty technical.
If slightly better geeky features gets you excited, and the lack of phone support doesn’t scare you, Kinsta could be a good fit.

1. You’re budget-conscious.
If $60 or $100 a month sounds like a painful amount to pay for web hosting, then start out on SiteGround shared hosting.
2. You want to host things other than WordPress.
Kinsta only does WordPress, so if you want to manage email accounts through your hosting—or if you’re also messing around with a Python app—then get SiteGround.
3. Your site is just starting out.
We recommend SiteGround’s GrowBig plan (learn why) for almost all new sites.
4. You think you may need phone support.
SiteGround has it, Kinsta doesn’t, so if you need it consider SiteGround.
