  • 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

  • Excellent customer support

    I rang Krystal after encountering an email issue with my iPhone. I was put through in a matter of moments to Steven, who was incredibly helpful in assisting my problem, which I could have spent hours on if not for his support. I was very grateful for the quick investigation!

  • Shine on, Krystal Hosting

    Been with this hosting company for a number of years, and always found them caring and professional. And, of course, they provide a great service. Well done, Krystal. You are a shining example of something we had back in the day, but sadly seem to have lost in the here and now.

  • 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!

  • Consistently wonderful

    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!
