  • Krystal are amazing!

    Krystal's cloud based infrastructure and hosting are fantastic. Since we have been using them, all of our websites perform faster than they have done with any previous host. The best part about Krystal, is their support who is always there at a drop of a hat, and are super friendly! Also Olesia today went above and beyond to help with a large domain transfer :)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

PCI-DSS compliance

We provide 100% PCI-DSS compliant hosting

If your e-commerce website handles credit card transactions online, then it’s likely you’ll need to be PCI-DSS compliant and process payments in a safe, secure and compliant hosting environment. At Krystal, all business hosting plans are deployed onto a PCI scan compliant server ensuring you’ll be able to take payments on your website in the correct manner and as outlined by the PCI Security Standards Council.

PCI compliance levels explained

There are 4 levels of PCI compliance depending on how you handle the credit card process online and the number of transactions are completed each year.

  • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 1

    Merchants that process over 6,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions annually. This also includes any merchant that has experienced a previous data breach where sensitive information has been compromised on the server.

  • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 2

    Merchants that process between 1,000,000 and 6,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions per year.

  • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 3

    Merchants that process between 20,000 and 1,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions per year.

  • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 4

    Merchants that process less than 20,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions annually, plus all other merchants that process up to 1 million Visa or MasterCard transactions per year.

What is PCI compliance?

PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an information security standard for organisations that handle credit cards from the major card providers such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and others.
