Verified customer testimonials from TrustPilot
Rated Excellent based on 1,557 reviews
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.
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!
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 :)
Excellent 5 star service!
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
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.
