Free Hosting for Startups

UK business startups can receive free hosting for 1 year

Are you a Startup that needs hosting?

If you’re a UK business less than 1 year old we’ll host your Killer App, website or idea FREE FOR A YEAR.

We’ll even scale your solution from acorn to oak, supporting you no matter how big you get.

Why? We want you to succeed.

20 years ago we started out in business with just £127.50’s worth of CD stock and a dream.

Today we employ over 50 hosting heroes, service 34,000 happy clients and are growing at 30%. If we can do it, so can you.

We believe business is about more than just profit, and that successful companies have a responsibility to put back in to their communities. So here we are, hoping to promote and support grass-roots entrepreneurship in the UK.

Of course we hope that when you succeed you’ll remember our leg up and we’ll have formed a life-long relationship, but that’s just a bonus. It’s the trying that counts.

The "small" print

  • You must be a UK company registered at Companies House within the last year. (if you’re about to register contact us)
  • There’s a £1 setup fee. (this is charged to allow us to validate your identity and prevent fraud)
  • We’ll put you on our sterling Sapphire Business Hosting plan by default - worth £349.99/year. (but we’ll scale you to your own VPS Cloud if needed inc. load balancing, clustering etc)
  • You’ll need to link to us on your site. (and any social media activity you can generate would be warmly received!)

    The platform is great, brilliant value for money hosting with generous storage etc vs competitors. The support however is what sets this apart it's outstanding, quick and efficient handling all sorts of queries. I'll be sticking with these guys for a while to come

  • 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. Bloody good job guys!

  • Absolutely amazing

    Absolutely amazing! I was recommended Krystal 15 years ago (as a hosting company for my website), and in the 15 years 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 recommed Krystal.

  • 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.
