2015 Year in Review – Kinsta Insights

2015 was a big year for Kinsta. We launched our managed WordPress hosting platform, grew our team, and released a number of new features and services. Here’s a look back at some of the highlights from the past year.

Launch of Kinsta

In April 2015, we officially launched Kinsta, our managed WordPress hosting platform. We’ve since grown to serve thousands of customers around the world, and we’re proud to be the go-to hosting provider for many of the world’s top WordPress developers and agencies.

New Features and Services

Throughout the year, we released a number of new features and services to make Kinsta even better. We added support for PHP 7, introduced our staging environment, and launched our free migration service. We also released our Kinsta Dashboard, which makes it easy to manage your WordPress sites.

Growth of the Team

We also grew our team in 2015. We added new members to our support, development, and marketing teams, and we’re now a team of over 20 people. We’re excited to continue to grow in 2016 and beyond.

Looking Ahead

We’re looking forward to an even bigger and better 2016. We’ll be releasing new features and services, expanding our team, and continuing to provide the best managed WordPress hosting experience possible. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!

However, we have succeeded and will have 7 figures of revenue this year, and we are growing exponentially. Thank you to all the customers that have gotten us this far and will help us continue to grow.

Customers from 62 countries spread across 6 continents have trusted us with their hard-earned money. We do not have any customers from Antarctica yet, but we haven’t given up!

A Few Numbers

  • 11 Global Data Centers Via 4 Providers
  • 5 Billion HTTP Requests Served Per Month
  • 75 TB Egress Data Transfer Per Month
  • Hundreds of VPSs and Nearly 1000 CPUs
  • Many Sites With 10+ Million Uniques Per Month

Recently we acquired several notable clients such as Swagway, whom we helped save from a hosting disaster on Cyber Monday.

Latest Technology

We were among the first WordPress hosts (if not the first) that offered HHVM support on their plans. HHVM still provides better performance and because of this we prefer using it whenever possible on every site hosted here, instead of standard PHP.

We Take Support Very Seriously

We’ve been using Intercom as our support software and have been very happy with it. Clients seem to prefer it over outdated archaic solutions such as Zendesk. Some 2015 insights from Intercom include:

  • 4255 Solved Tickets
  • 720 Tickets Over Last 90 Days
  • Median First Response Time of 9 Minutes

The busiest days of the week for support tickets are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with weekends being much quieter as expected.

We are always striving to make our support better and this year we’ll be working to increase support staff and decrease median response times even further. Our support rating is still #1 worldwide according to HostingReviews.io and almost every week we face new unique situations and cases.

We make quality support a priority and you will never get an answer such as “figure it out on your own”, which seems to be quite typical in the hosting industry. We’ve also been using New Relic’s APM feature which allows us to look behind the scenes to identify performance issues and ways to improve your WordPress sites.

Independent Reviews

We are proud to have not only been included in WPShout’s annual Hosting Review survey, but to have placed first in overall satisfaction among hosts that got enough survey responses to be included in the charts. We scored a 9.7/10.0 beating the likes of WP Engine, Pagely, Digital Ocean, Flywheel, GoDaddy, MediaTemple, and all EIG owned brands like Bluehost. Other scores included 9.8 for value, 9.7 for reliability, 9.8 for speed, and a whopping 9.9 for support.
