Mikki Gell,
1 month ago I purchased Magento hosting from Krystal hosting. they really helped me a lot to set up my business. I do not come from a technical background but I didn't face any problem to setting up ...Read Moremy business because it offers the best knowledge resources & supportive customer support. For my other website, I purchased 1 domain from GoDaddy & WordPress hosting from Domain Racer. These companies assure me that non-technical people can also build the best online business.Less

Absolutely Amazing!

This is truly the best hosting company out there. Their servers are amazingly fast, and their customer support is exceptional.

I currently use their VPS service Kloud to host all my websites, and everything runs smoothly, day i...Read Moren day out.

I would highly recommend this host for use on all your websites, having tried out their Shared Reseller package myself as well.

Thanks Krystal!

Avoid krystal like the plague

Moved my site from bestwebhosting (which is krystal owned) without my consent to a unserviceable / broken krystal account. Tried to move it back when I shouted (so they could then move it to the krystal account I opened and paid f...Read Moreor) and made matters worse. Now site down, which they claimed was up around the globe until I provided evidence it was down. Bad attitude and incompetence combined.

Now it has gone back from being somehow suspended to a security risk (browser alerted). What a joke. Total amateurs.

Now it is suspended again.

Now it is a security risk again.

Now my support chat window was closed on me.

All of this no doubt ruining my Google and Bing rankings, as well as losing me business I can not afford to lose.

Mr. Blackler, get it working now, refund my £, pay me compensation, and give me a free month of working site please so I can move to someone else who knows what they are doing.

They have now moved me back to bestwebhosting but I continue to get issues with emails. Had to add forwarders for several active email addresses to ensure I get them.

This has all completely screwed up my day. LUCKILY I was around else krystal "support" would no doubt be patting themselves on their backs saying "what a great job we did again" "look it is working great" while my site, moved without my consent to a non working account, would be toast.

Awesome team and brilliant customer support.

James, Jamie, Steven and Ben all helped me with a few issues regarding my website. I was having trouble with php, maximum timeout and FOUT (flash of unstyled text - for those of you who know as much about web design as I do!). Aft...Read Moreer many hours of reading forums and trying to understand what was going on, I contacted Krystal. They worked on my issues professionally, quickly and courteously, even replying to me late on a Saturday and Sunday night. They fixed everything, suggested a further plug in and even configured it for me. I love these guys!Less

An exciting adventure through an FTP nightmare

Tristan is the super hero who led me safely through the perilous labrynth of FTP land. He persisted even when I thought all was lost and I would have to give up. Tenatious and unrelenting, this clever professional guy would not...Read More be defeated and in the end beat the demon and the site connected! I even learned a lot on the way.
Overall everyone I have dealt with at Krystal have been most helpful. I have had a lot of confusing issues which they have dealt with, with great patience, and I have complete confidence in them as a team.

I have been with Krystal for well over a decade. Their customer service has developed into one of the best I have seen. Even though they have grown, they really do give you a one to one service feel.

Excellent migration experience

Driven by a desire to update our buggy forum, we decided to move from our current hoster and from vBulletin to Invision. After reading many, many reviews, I discovered that although some hosting companies with a large number of re...Read Moreviews have many fans, they also have a fair number of people who were decidedly unhappy. Those 5 star ratings were offset with a surprising number of seemingly valid 1 star complaints. The sole exception I could find was Krystal. It seemed too good to be true, but after very positive experiences with their pre-sales team, we decided to take the leap and host our US-based forum in the UK with them.

Having just completed the first hop in our migration, which involved moving the existing vBulletin forum to Krystal, I can’t think of a single negative aspect to the experience. James, who has served as our primary point of contact, has been superb. Patiently answering my neophyte questions, making sure we were set up for success, taking phone calls along the way, and inspiring confidence that he wouldn't let us fail. When we ran into an unforeseeable issue with our old installation that began creating random havoc just 1 hour after our forum came back online at Krystal, he was on it immediately, finding the issue and restoring things to normal. Throughout the process, this has been the best end-to-end customer support I have ever experienced and I am fully confident that our upcoming migration from vBulletin to Invision will do nothing to change that opinion.

Krystal Hosting,
Thank you, John!

I'm glad to see that you made the leap to join Krystal.

We truly appreciate your kind words!
