Buen soporte
Ernesto Angeles,
Gracias, no solo resolvieron mi problema, también nos mostraron donde esta el problema, lo que me permitirá solucionar situaciones parecidas.
Great Technical Support!
Ruth Fast,
Kinsta has provided me with a reliable and FAST hosting platform over the past year. Very infrequently a problem does crop up (usually WordPress related!) and when it does Kinsta provides excellent technical support in a tim... Más ely manner. The technicians are patient and informative, and make every effort to solve the problem at hand. I would recommend Kinsta if you are looking for a managed WordPress hosting service. Menos

Down for hours in 5 different occasions
Ivan Garcia,
We had our business for one year. During that period we had intermittent routing problems to our website (i.e. inaccesible from several clients).
The support service answer is always that it is an unmanaged server so they can... Más 't help. After some proof that there is some serious problem with their routing configuration, they finally admitted and solved the problem. At least for now. It took 7 hours, multiple tickets and money lost in potential clients.
DO NOT TRUST them to run any serious business. You are adviced.

Kinsta Pricing Plans

Kinsta’s main managed WordPress, application, and database hosting plans are split into four pricing tiers: Entry, Basic, Medium, and Highest Plan. Each plan is best for:

  • Entry Level plans: Entry-level plans best for small businesses or personal websites.
  • Basic plans: Plans priced a little higher than their entry-level plans and suited to news websites, blogs, and small agencies.
  • Medium plans: Mid-range plans best for medium to large businesses.
  • Highest plans: High level plans suited to large corporations who need dedicated resources and high security.

A2Hosting Pricing Plans

Unlike Kinsta, A2Hosting has a different approach to pricing their plans. They have four main types of hosting plans in each tier: Shared, WordPress, VPS, and dedicated hosting.

  • Shared hosting: best suited for entry-level websites and websites with few pages.
  • WordPress hosting: These plans are best for all kinds of WordPress websites.
  • VPS hosting: ‘Shared plus’ plans with expanded resources and more power, best for mid-sized businesses & e-commerce stores, news websites, etc.
  • Dedicated hosting: The most powerful and dedicated resources, best for large corporations and businesses that handle sensitive data

Depending on the size of your website, you can choose from entry, basic, middle, and highest plan for each type of hosting!

And the Winner Is…A2Hosting

For someone just starting out, Kinsta’s pricing may not make sense. On the other hand, A2Hosting has easy-to-read plans with well-organized prices in each tier plus it’s much more affordable than Kinsta.


Round 3: Website performance (Uptime & Speed)

Uptime is important because your website will be unavailable to visitors if the server is down, and an unreliable host can have a negative impact on your site’s search engine ranking.

Speed and load time are important factors to consider when choosing a host. The faster your website loads, the more likely visitors are to stick around; slow websites are more likely to send visitors away.

To test the server speeds of each host, we used GTMetrix and Google PageSpeed Insights.

Kinsta Uptime & Speed

Kinsta’s average server speed (TTFB) on GTMetrix was 277 ms and had an overall performance of 84%:

Their efficient search engine will help you find whatever you need in their extensive knowledgebase:

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

I saw that you could chat with an agent live on A2Hosting, without signing up yet and so, I decided to give it a try.

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

I liked that you’d be told how long you have to wait and how many people are ahead of you on the queue.

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

And I had to wait a good while before the agent joined. She, however, responded to my questions very professionally. It still took some time for her to get back to me between each question.

And the Winner Is…Kinsta

Kinsta’s customer service is outstanding. I was amazed at how quickly they responded to my inquiries and how professional their staff was.

Kinsta Ease of use

Kinsta’s has a simple and aesthetically pleasing website you’d have no problem finding your way around. It doesn’t have weird colors or cramped fonts – the design is very concise and everything is placed where you expect it to be. I personally liked how they have only focused on what’s important on the landing page,

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

The MyKinsta dashboard (alternative to cPanel), is a feature that makes Kinsta stand out from the rest.  Besides being functional, it’s very well-designed, intuitive, and has all the necessary tools to manage your backend conveniently even if you don’t have coding experience. Since I have been reviewing hosts, I’d say Kinsta has one of the best UIs I have seen.

It gets frequently updated with new features (most recently, performance monitoring to identify potential issues).

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

A2Hosting Ease of use

A2Hosting’s website has a nice green and orange color scheme – which looks quite classy overall. Functionally, you can see the hosting categories grouped toward the top of the screen without needing to scroll down. You can contact their live chat or place a call immediately.

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

The dashboard has a very professional design with a strong focus on support features. It’s a pretty decent dashboard with no tacky design and colors – easy and intuitive for beginners!

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

A2Hosting uses a modern cPanel for its backend, and is integrated into your main dashboard. The cPanel may feel familiar to experienced users, but it may be slightly intimidating for hosting beginners or audiences who are not technical.

Final: Kinsta Vs A2Hosting

And the Winner Is…Kinsta

The Kinsta dashboard UI (MyKinsta Dashboard) is far better designed and beginner-friendly than the average cPanel offered by A2Hosting.

Kinsta Security

Kinsta offers DDoS protection, hardware firewalls, and uptime monitoring for security. Its plans also include free CDN to boost your website performance, as well as another layer of DDoS protection. They also provide automatic daily backups.

A2Hosting Security

Although the most basic plan of A2Hosting doesn’t include automatic daily backups, all other plans come with this feature, DDoS protection and an impressive built-in firewall. You also get free SSL and a malware scanner that runs periodic checks to ensure website integrity.

A2Hosting also allows you to activate Brute Force Defense for extra security. You can set up Sucuri Firewall (a cloud-based WAF) to prevent hacks & DDoS attacks.

And the Winner Is…A2Hosting

A2Hosting stands out in this round as it provides some of the best security features on the market. With all those extra layers of security, you can focus on what’s important – your business!


Round 7: Server locations

It’s important to think about where your host’s servers are located. Some hosts have data centers in several parts of the world, while others don’t. Remember, your site will load faster if it is hosted close to where your visitors are.
