Kinsta is well known for the top-notch user experience and support it provides customers. It also comes equipped with an impressive set of hosting features.
See how it compares with WPMU DEV below.
How the battle went down.
For these tests, we used two different (and free) performance testing tools:
A load testing service that allows you to stress test your web-apps and APIs with thousands of concurrent connections. Find out more
KeyCDN's performance testing tool
This tool measures the performance of any URL from 10 different locations around the world. We used this to test TTFB. Find out more
We won’t sugarcoat it. Kinsta is the only competing host that has it over us in max parallel clients - coming in with an impressive 170 concurrent users. They also took the victory in the TTFB Average (Geo-optimized) category, clocking in with a speedy 35.15ms.
WPMU DEV made a comeback with TTFB Average (All Locations), but overall the winner in this performance comparison is Kinsta. Although, the cost is an important factor to consider when choosing a host. And currently Kinsta is three times the cost of DEV when comparing starter plans.
