There are many hosting services available in the market recently. All of them are equally good. But if you need hosting specifically for your WordPress website, then there are very few hosting service providers that are providing hosting services specifically for WordPress users. Kinsta and WP Engine are two of these hosting service providers. They are the most popular WordPress hosting service available in the market right now.
Kinsta and WP Engine both provide dedicated WordPress hosting for their customers. If you own a big company or corporation, then this might be the right choice for you. But it is quite difficult to choose the best one among them.
Here in this article, I am going to discuss both of these services and then I am going to compare Kinsta Vs WP Engine side by side. So without any more further delay let’s start with this article.
Kinsta is a very popular dedicated WordPress hosting service that was established in 2013. Kinsta is trusted by many big companies like Spotify and Coca-Cola. This hosting service uses the Google cloud platform and they provide their service for hardcore WordPress users. Kinsta is one of the most premium hosting service providers that also comes with a premium price tag.
