Don't even look elsewhere!
I've probably used 10 or 12 hosting providers over my career but none have even come close to the quality of service and support that I've had the pleasure of experiencing with Krystal.
Krystal - clearly the best.
If you are migrating and find yourself up in the air without a trusty pilot, the Krystal help team are your air traffic control and will bring you to a safe landing. Why can't every company do it this way? You may have an issue to resolve. If you choose to pick up the 'phone (yes, you can speak with a human being at Krystal) : 1. You get an immediate response - that's every time you need to call, or email. 2. There is an articulate, intelligible, intelligent, knowledgeable, patient person who will see clearly through your digital fog. Thank you Alex, Jack, Jack F., Jordan.
My go-to supplier for hosting
I've used the majority of the UK based hosts and Krystal come out top every time. Their independence means the support and products are a class above all of the competitors who are acquired by the 'big 2'. Great infrastructure coupled with high quality systems and bespoke control panels - means everything just works as it should. On the rare occastion that there are issues - support is efficient and of high quality. Status pages are honest and transparent. Having some older accounts with other hosts is always a reminder that we're in the best hands with Krystal. Hopefully we'll get everything migrated over one day!
I was hesitant about changing host but…
I was hesitant about changing host but the team were extremely friendly and helpful and made the migration process very straightforward. I came back from work and the website had been moved over for me, all without me having to do anything! The performance boost my website has gained is massive - Google PageSpeed Insights now shows my website to be a 99/100! To anyone thinking about going with Krystal, please do! You won't regret it. Thank you to Jordan, Bradley, Jack and Kris at Krystal for making the migration process pain-free.
I was recommended Krystal 15 years ago I have NEVER been let down by them. I have had tech queries from time to time and they always seamlessly, promptly and happily help me out. Exemplary service and tech acumen. I highly highly recommend Krystal.

The World’s Fastest WordPress Hosting
We tested our platform against some of the biggest names in WordPress hosting. The graph below shows the results. Onyx is twice as fast as some of our leading competitors!
Each service has been tested using the Siege stress tester from a High Frequency Compute Vultr system in their London datacentre.
Testing involved two rounds. In each round, 200 concurrent requests to a default WordPress homepage were generated as quickly as they could be processed over the course of 1 minute, repeated 3 times, then with the average result of the 3 tests being taken.
The first round tested cached responses using the provider's default/recommended caching utilities enabled, the second round tested uncached responses with caching disabled to simulate requests to dynamic, uncacheable content. The results of these two rounds were then averaged together to represent a 50% mix of cached/uncached requests.
