Krystal warmly welcomes...

Former clients of Blue Earth

Blue Earth


Blue Earth is now part of the Krystal Hosting team. We're delighted to welcome you to the Krystal family and have put together this little primer to help you quickly familiarise yourself with our set up.

If you’d like to know more about us as a company you can here and if you need assistance we're here to help - please check out our support site. We look forward to working with you. Welcome to Krystal, from all the team.

We've collected the information you'll need going forward below.

Welcome to Krystal!

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and warmly welcome you to Krystal Hosting. We host over 200,000 websites on behalf of over 25,000 clients and have recently celebrated our 15th birthday, so you're in experienced hands! Our values and ethos are very similar to Blue Earth and I'm confident that you'll love the service and support we provide. You can now look forward to things like 24/7 LiveChat support and enhanced email anti-spam filtering (Plus much more, see the list below)

What’s already happened?

Within the next few days we'll securely migrate your client information and services (domains and hosting packages) into the Krystal Client Area. We haven't yet migrated your actual hosting, databases or email data to our platform - For now these remain exactly as-is on your current platform, we'll be in touch in the coming weeks regarding the migration of your hosting itself.

In the meantime however we're now providing full support for your services - If you have any queries, issues, or concerns you can reach us by phone on 020 8050 1337 9am-8pm, via the Live Chat facility at the bottom-right of our website 24/7, or by email at contact@krystal.uk.
