The "small" print

Any Ukrainian national residing in the UK under any of the UK government visas opened in response to the war in Ukraine (including but not limited to Homes for Ukraine, Ukraine Family Scheme, Ukraine Extension Scheme) is eligible to apply for a Ukraine Support Business Account (Eligible Applicant).

The business must be a new business venture, founded or in the process of being founded by the Eligible Applicant (existing businesses operating in the UK prior to March 2022 and prior to the Eligible Applicant’s arrival into the UK will not be considered). Previous businesses managed by Eligible Applicants in Ukraine that are looking to be re-established in the UK are eligible.

Eligible Applicants will be required to provide the following documentation on account opening:

  1. Copy of Ukrainian passport bio page (preferred) or copy of Ukrainian birth certificate and
  2. Confirmation which visa scheme you have used to come to the UK and either
  3. Visa/BRP shown in your passport or
  4. Permission to travel letter together from the Home Office with a passport stamp from your entry into the UK.

Eligible Applicants need to validate their ID by passing our fraud checks. This means we have to charge the nominal amount of £1 as a one-off set up fee.

As long as the Eligible Applicant’s application fulfils the criteria, formal qualifications or experience or lack thereof will not influence eligibility, as Krystal believes in equal business opportunity for all entrepreneurs regardless of formal qualifications.

You will need to abide by our Terms and Conditions and our Acceptable Use Policy.

We also request that you link to Krystal on your website. Any social media activity you can generate to spread the word about this scheme would be warmly received.

Eligible Applicants will be given a Sapphire hosting plan by default - worth £370/year. After 12 months, your account will be moved automatically onto our normal Sapphire plan and will be charged at the normal Sapphire plan rate. Should you wish to cancel before your 12 months of free hosting is up, you can do so at any time. If you choose to renew your Sapphire plan, you can still take advantage of our moneyback guarantee by cancelling within 60 days. If you wish to change hosting plan before your renewal is due, simply contact one of our support team who will be more than happy to assist. If you wish to change hosting plan before your renewal is due (various other plan levels are available), simply contact one of our support team who will be more than happy to assist.

The free website domain (URL) includes the following domain extension / .uk / / / / .com / .net / .org / .info and is free for the life of the plan. If you would like a premium domain or a domain with a different domain extension you will need to pay for it.

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.

  • Hands down the best assistance ever

    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.

  • Absolutely amazing

    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.

  • Simply a great service!

    Been with Krystal for years at this point for web hosting but never had my domains with them until now. Transferred the majority of my domains in so far so their systems can mange those too as the old registrar was getting way to pricy compared to Krystal at nearly double the price.

  • 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.
