CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

Custom solutions are for systems that receive millions of visits per day, or more than 20,000 concurrent visits. These websites are demanding, they are therefore set in multiple servers.

PAGELY PRICING

Pagely is a web hosting company for heavy traffic websites only.Pricing for different plans are:

VPS-1 VPS-2 VPS-1+ [HA] VPS-2+ [HA] Enterprise Pulsar
SITES 30 60 30 60 60+ 1 PRODUCTION SITE

PRICE(4) PER MONTH 499 999 1249 2249 2500 20000

 

Now let’s compare the two web hosting companies.Kinsta’s cheapest plan costs $100 per month and it comes with 50GB bandwidth, unlimited pageviews, one site free migrations and 5GB SSD storage-these are the most important features of any hosting plan.

Pagely’s cheapest plan costs $499 per month. This plan includes 30 sites,60GB bandwidth and 50GB disk space.

When you compare the cheapest plans for Kinsta and Pagely,you will notice that Kinsta has better terms, it’s 4 times cheaper than Pagely yet comes with the same bandwidth as Pagely and unlimited traffic.

Traffic limitation

In terms of traffic, both sites guarantee unlimited traffic.Kinsta, however, has the most powerful servers which can scale to sustain thousands of concurrent visitors. Several experiments conducted show that a single server can sustain more than 2000 concurrent visits.

Customer support

Both Kinsta and Pagely have excellent customer support. It takes average 5 minutes for a representative to contact you, in both cases.

Heavy traffic websites

Both companies target heavy traffic websites.Kinsta servers are capable of handling millions of visitors per day, same for Pagely servers. But I will recommend Kinsta servers because they have the latest technology which enhances website loading speed and ensures automatic scaling.

Verdict

Though both companies are good, Kinsta is cheaper and most reliable.I go for Kinsta
