Kinsta Managed WordPress Hosting November Platform Updates

Kinsta recently sent out an email blast about their latest platform improvements and I can tell you one thing, and that’s that they are listening to your feedback.  Here are some of the latest and greatest additions to the Kinsta managed WordPress hosting platform.

SSH access on all plans

Starting immediately, all Kinsta plans will have SSH access available to them.  Previously, this service was only available on Business I plans and higher.  For many developers this is an important work-flow tool so providing access across all plans is important to keeping developers comfortable and happy.  Hello WP-CLI!

More Disk Space (SSD Storage) for Low Tier Plans

Starter, Pro, and Business I plans got some love in the form of more disk space.  Yay! More space for cat memes!

Here is a summary of the new changes:

  • Starter plans now have 5 GB (previously 3 GB)
  • Pro plans now have 10GB (previously 6 GB)
  • Business 1 plans now have 15 GB (previously 10 GB)

More Free Migrations for Starter Annual Plan

I’m telling you, the folks at Kinsta must be getting in the holiday spirit early this year because they’re always being so generous.  Previously, Kinsta was providing a number of free migrations to their Pro and higher plan customers.  Now they’re offering the same service to all customers who are on the Starter plan and pay annually.  A quick Google search for WordPress migration experts will show you just how valuable a migration service is.

Also worth mentioning is that Kinsta is offering unlimited free migrations from WP Engine and StudioPress as well as Flywheel.  Don’t miss your opportunity to get on board with Kinsta!
