  • The gold standard in UK web hosting

    Over the past 5 years, their service has been nothing short of stellar. What really stands out, besides their unwavering tech support, is their commitment to being at the forefront of technology while holding strong to their eco principles.

  • 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!

  • Well worth the money!

    I’ve been with Krystal since 2015, and have always been very impressed by the quality of their technical support. I’ve just had a problem with my email system, which they tracked down in a few hours, and at no extra charge, to an obscure fault in my Thunderbird email software.

  • By far the best hosting service provider

    Krystal is the best hosting service provider I have come across. My website is always up and running smoothly, and I have received nothing but positive feedback about the speed and performance of my website, which I attribute to Krystal’s top-of-the-line hosting services.

  • 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!
