Hosting Plans

Host your store on our ultra-fast hosting platform that runs on 100% renewable energy and gives you maximum performance while also protecting the planet.

Tailor-made for your website

The features you want in your hosting

Each hosting package comes with cPanel, giving you an easy way to manage your website, as well as free SSL certificates, over 380 one-click applications, including WordPress, Drupal, and OpenCart, a website builder, and unlimited bandwidth, email addresses, and databases.

Unlimited UK-based support

Talented cloud hosting specialists

All our staff are on hand to answer your hosting questions, working together to find the answers to any questions or issues you may have. You can reach them through tickets, live chats, or phone calls, with 24/7 emergency phone support available on our larger packages.

Seamless migrations

An easy move to Krystal

We know how important keeping your clients' sites live is, and we'll work closely with you to ensure a smooth transition from their previous hosting companies. Talk to us, and we'll ensure a website move to our premium hosting that has a minimum of downtime and disruption.

Optimised state-of-the-art servers

Enterprise-grade servers for ultimate performance

All our hosting cloud servers utilise LiteSpeed web server and caching technologies, the latest Dell servers, and Samsung battery-backed solid-state disks to deliver lightning-fast performance for your website, with a 1Gbps connection from our data centre.

Safe and secure hosting

Regular scanning, protection, and backups

We work hard to ensure our clients' websites are kept secure, including running regular virus and malware scans, keeping our servers updated, using firewalls and CloudLinux across our servers, 2.0 Tbps of DDoS protection, and backups taken regularly.

60-day money-back guarantee

No-quibble refunds

If you're not entirely satisfied with your hosting package, just let us know within 60 days, and we'll refund you in full, minus the cost of any domain names. Domain names are non-refundable, and you're free to transfer them away if you wish.

  • Best hosting company out there

    A massive support network and outstanding service. Anyone who is complaining about Krystal has never used any of the other ‘giants’. Second to none - will be here for the long run

  • Unusually good!

    I just realised that I’ve been with Krystal for the last 5 years! That’s pretty unusual indeed for me. On reflection, I’ve run through similar companies every 1-3 years over the last 25 years. What's kept me with Krystal is the following: good performance in what they do, good update information, everything is transparent, they treat me as a person, and they'll go the extra mile.

  • The best UK shared hosting provider

    I’ve tried a number of different hosting companies over the years, and Krystal are by far the best UK shared hosting provider I’ve found.

  • Excellent customer service

    I had a few small business websites that I needed to migrate from from another host (which was slow and more expensive), and they helped me with step-by-step instructions after I struggled with it, and then helped me to troubleshoot errors on the other migrations I tried by myself. Absolutely great customer service!

  • Even the more technical of us need help!

    Despite having a background in tech, setting up websites still isn’t second nature to me. This is where Krystal and their great support team come in. I didn’t need to pull out my hair, because the chat feature came up, and a super-helpful real human helped me immediately and without stress.
