Amazing service at unbelievable prices
Krystal Hosting offer hosting packages at unbelievably low prices. Their customer service is second to none and will often answer questions out of hours.

It is very easy to migrate (both up and down) between their hosting packages.

I recommend all of my customers use Krystal Hosting for their websites.

Krystal Hosting, although not the cheapest they certainly are fantastic for what they provide. I don't think I've ever had any significant outage and their support is always available.

I can't recommend them enough.
