Kinsta offers premium managed WordPress hosting with free migrations, free CDN, edge caching, 24/7 support, automatic SSL certificates, site cloning (from the Pro Plan), and multisite support (from the Pro plan).
If you’re wondering how you can create a hosting account on Kinsta for your WordPress website, then you’re in the right place.
In this blog post, I’ll show you how easy it’s to register on Kinsta to start your blog on WordPress.
Grab your cup of your favorite beverage (I have my cup of coffee here ☕), and let’s start.
Note: If you compare Kinsta with other WordPress hosting providers, it may be more expensive. So if you’re just starting your blog, you may not need to start with Kinsta.
In that case, I have a tutorial to help you create a hosting account on SiteGround (which is the one that I use for this website). You can also take a look at Rocket.net prices and follow a tutorial to create a hosting account on their platform.
Or you can purchase a WordPress hosting plan on Lyrical Host, which is an independent hosting company, created by bloggers, for bloggers. In that case, you can use my discount code SOULFULGIRLS10 to get 10% off any hosting plan.
Any of these hosting providers (Kinsta, Lyrical Host, SiteGround, and Rocket.net) offer managed WordPress hosting, which makes it easier to install and set up WordPress. So choose one that fits your needs for your online business.
If you purchase a hosting plan on Kinsta, SiteGround, Lyrical Host, Rocket.net, or Elementor Hosting with my affiliate link, I’ll give you my Canva Download Instructions Template (value $39) for free.
To claim this bonus, you’ll have to send me a screenshot of your purchase to email@example.com. Once my affiliate commission is approved, I’ll give you a 100% coupon code to get this template for free.
Go to Kinsta, click on “Pricing”, and then on “Learn more” on their WordPress Sites option.
Then browse the different Starter Plans and Business Plans, to choose a hosting plan.
There are many hosting plans available on Kinsta, and they are all available to pay monthly or yearly. I enumerate four of Kinsta’s hosting plans below, but you can take a look at all their plans on this page.
The difference is that if you pay yearly, you can get two months for free during the first year (it will renew at full price).
Kinsta has Starter, Pro, Business, and Enterprise hosting plans. If you have a small business, then their Starter, Pro, or Business 1 hosting plans may be the most suitable for you (depending on how many websites you have or are planning to have in the near future).
(Disclaimer: Kinsta may change their offers from time to time, so take a look at their prices before purchasing.)
There’s no offer of a free domain for the first year or a free email service, and you can purchase hosting for one year only (there are no offers for two or three years).
Rocket.net offers plans for two or three years with a discount (you get six months for free when you purchase a hosting plan for two years, and twelve months for free when you purchase a hosting plan for three years, though this may change from time to time). But like Kinsta, they don’t offer a free domain for the first year or a free email service.
If this is a deal-breaker for you, then you can consider creating a hosting account on SiteGround instead.
While Lyrical Host doesn’t include a free domain for the first year, they offer email accounts and up to two years hosting plans (they even have a six month hosting plan, which I haven’t seen anywhere else). You can use my coupon code SOULFULGIRLS10 to get 10% off any WordPress hosting plan on Lyrical Host.
Another option that you have is to purchase a domain name on Namecheap, where there are always promotions available. They also offer email services.
Personally, I use:
I prefer to keep all these services separately, but that’s just my opinion. So choose what you think is better for your business.
If you don’t mind managing your domain name and your business email on another platform, select the hosting plan that best suits your needs on Kinsta, and click on “Signup”.
