Kinsta is one of many managed WordPress hosts, but if you're looking to host a WooCommerce store, WooCart offers a much better solution with Lossless Staging and services to better support your online business.
While we may be biased, we are confident that WooCart is the better solution for your store. Let us explain.
We host only WooCommerce. Nothing else, not even WordPress, much less any other platform. Just like you don't go to the supermarket for high-end audio equipment, so shouldn't you use a general host for your WooCommerce store.
Here are a few things WooCart does better because we specialize in hosting WooCommerce stores:
Kinsta and WooCart share the underlying hosting on Google Cloud. But with WooCart you receive fully dedicated resources for better and more reliable performance.
WooCart's staging allows you to easily merge staging with live without loss of order or customer data. Kinsta's staging only works well with regular WordPress as it will overwrite all your orders and customers on the live store.
Everything, from the dashboard to tools, is built around the requirements and needs of store owners, not just regular site owners.
All this means faster stores with more conversions, easier updates and testing changes, and less stressful maintenance of your WooCommerce store.
I approached WooCart as we wanted a specialist WooCommerce hosting company that could help squeeze extra value from every single visitor.
WooCart certainly delivered! Not only have they helped us increase the load speed of our stores but they have also saved us a ton of money in hosting fees at the same time, bonus!
If you are looking for WooCommerce hosting, I would recommend WooCart all day long!

Kinsta offers a basic staging environment, where when you publish the staging store, it overwrites the live version. If orders were made in the meantime, they will be lost, as well as data of all new customers.
Because WooCart works only with WooCommerce, we know exactly what changes are made, and we download them before publishing the staging store. That's why we call it Lossless Staging - because there will be no loss of data.
After moving all three of my stores to WooCart I'm convinced this is the way WooCommerce should have been built from the beginning. WooCart gets us out of all the WooCommerce tech headaches so we can focus on running our business. Huge thanks to the WooCart team for their amazing support and product.
WooCart was built from the ground up for WooCommerce stores, and not just as an add-on to existing WordPress hosting. We also know the requirements of WooCommerce users better and have built tools to fulfill them.
WooCart's Lossless Staging is a gamechanger for updating and testing WooCommerce stores. What was before a cumbersome activity is now down to a few minutes and a few simple clicks.
