  • I am a Krystal customer for a long time now, using its services as a freelance developer, and I've seen their customer assistance charmingly evolving from very good to super awesome. I always met friendly and knowledgable real people in the chat which guided me to their documentation but also assisted me on the spot with a huge variety of everyday technical issues with DNS and hosting duties.
