After 3 months of live testing in 2019, let’s package up all the Kinsta test results and find out how they’ve performed so far…

Kinsta Review – Testing Method

  • Prior to testing, I have setup identical content on all 6 Live Test Sites
  • Each week over 60,000 speed & uptime tests are run using independent tools, GTmetrix & Pingdom

  • Test results below are from 07 Jan 2019 to 17 Mar 2019

Test #1: Speed

The GTmetrix Speed Test checks how long it takes for a website to fully load using a desktop internet browser. This test is then repeated every hour throughout the week (1,080 times).

  • Kinsta has absolutely blitzed our speed test, comfortably outpointing all our other hosts. The regions where they have been particularly impressive are India & Australia.
  • Kinsta is currently ranked 1st in our Speed Rankings.

  • Kinsta is currently ranked 2nd in our Uptime Rankings.
