Krystal just do everything well
Very well. Outstandingly well. Whether it be hosting, tech support, or domain-related, they are responsive and extremely competent. I have no intention of moving any of my domains or sites anywhere else.Read review
Excellent support and advice
As an agency owner, you have hundreds of hosting companies to choose from, and we couldn’t be happier with Krystal. We’ve been with them for five years and the support - when needed - is first class. Very happy to recommend!Read review
I honestly can’t recommend Krystal enough
I spoke to Steven in Support, who was helpful beyond my expectations, exploring various options with me and talking me through every step to upgrade my IT to make it as easy as possible. I honestly can't recommend Krystal enough if all their employees are as helpful as he has been!Read review
They’ve been unbelievably consistent with their service and an absolute joy to work with. I’ve never dealt with a company that has kept its very high standards consistently. 5 stars doesn’t do this place justice!Read review
Super friendly and helpful
Managed to solve our problems in a really short space of time.Read review
