Kinsta utilizes virtual machines in one of Google Cloud Platform’s multiple data centers. Each machine has up to 96 CPUs and hundreds of gigabytes of RAM. Hardware resources (RAM/CPU) are allocated to each site container automatically by our virtual machines on an as-needed basis.
Everything is interconnected over the highly reliable Google Cloud Platform’s “premium tier” network. This is designed to minimize distance and hops, resulting in faster more secure global transport of your data. Some hosting providers might opt for Google’s “standard tier” network service to cut costs, but we believe in only utilizing the best here at Kinsta... Google offers 19 locations throughout the USA, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and South America. They are strategically placed to offer the lowest latency anywhere in the world. This also results in blazing fast SFTP download and upload speeds.
Amazon Route 53 premium DNS is included for free for all Kinsta customers. Their global Anycast network, along with latency and geolocation routing help ensure your website is always online, stable, and has fast DNS lookup times.
We’ve also partnered up with KeyCDN, a real-time HTTP/2 and IPv6 powered content delivery network, with 35 POPs around the globe to speed up delivery of your assets (images, JS, CSS). Free bandwidth is included with every plan.
