Rated Excellent based on 1,606 reviews

  • Fast, friendly, knowledgeable support

    Krystal's fast, friendly, knowledgeable support always seem to read support requests in detail and give clear, relevant answers. If that was easy, more hosting providers would do it just as consistently - but I've found that to be rare elsewhere. Can't recommend Krystal highly enough.

  • 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.


    Verified Customer

  • Technical customer service that excels

    Migration is not for the faint hearted however Krystal moved my cPanel from TSOHost with all my WordPress sites and email accounts to cPanel at Krystal in a few hours with zero fuss. Their instruction and guidance was amazing and did all of the ticket notes with replies taking full ownership.

  • 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!
