Likelihood to Recommend

Kinsta

If you want to get a Wordpress website up and running quickly, easily, but don't have time to manage the security, harden the server, configure MySQL/MariaDB, or implement a caching system like Varnish. Also, be aware that Kinsta is more expensive than comparable solutions. However, if you want granular control over your server or your low on funds, [Kinsta] may not be the best option.

When shared with multiple teams, I could not find many products better than this. I enjoyed working in this aspect, it was smooth in cross-teams transferring. They have a good foundation of technology I would say, the thing it is lacking is in the usability for non-technical people. I have seen many struggling with this aspect.

Cons

Kinsta

  • It would be nice to be able to browse the file system in the web interface, similar to how Plesk does it
  • More in-depth analytics (breakdown by country, demo graph, etc)

  • I needed support for many modules, where I think I was not satisfied.
  • The detailing of each module is lacking.
  • If you form clutter of files, there is no solution for it.

They are quick to respond, very knowledgeable and I don't have to be escalated to get my problems resolved quickly. They have an efficient chat system that allows for support requests to be handled quickly and easily picked up by another specialist if the need arises. They are always there when I need them.

Support is completely inflexible in their policies and procedures, turning even the simplest request into a months-long ordeal.

Alternatives Considered

Our other websites are hosted on a variety of services. The majority are on an onsite host in Texas. The rest are distributed between Linode and DigitalOcean. The nice things about our onsite host and Linode and DigitalOcean is that we have complete control over our servers, our security, and what we're deploying. Costs are also much cheaper. However, it takes longer to deploy a web application due to having to configure everything from the ground up. And with Linode and DigitalOcean, depending on your traffic and your server configuration, costs can go up and down unexpectedly. Kinsta, on the other hand, is extremely easy to use, both in their admin interface and deploying a site quickly. You don't have to worry about configuring anything, including security. You can set it up and never worry about the backend again, as Kinsta takes care of it all, even updating Wordpress. However, be aware the costs are much higher for everything you're getting.

I would select Sungard on the basis of technology foundation and functionality. It gave me an ample amount of features which I could use in a better way. The inter-team communication gets a better structure than the other products. I would use it on the basis of the above mentioned points. This has proven to be a good support for my team.
