In this article I am recommending one of the best UK based website hosting* providers.
I used to have my website hosting with a really poor company and my website would be offline quite a lot. Whilst the customer service was OK in terms of replying to tickets, the actual up-time of my website was losing me revenue.
In the end, I decided to look around for a new hosting provider. I was looking for a UK based one with UK customer service who you could actually speak to someone over the phone or get a quick reply via online chat. Luckily I came across Krystal Hosting.
Now you might think, yeah, yeah, Justin is an affiliate for Krystal and is just blagging and raving about them to get you to visit Krystal via his links. In answer to that, no.
I am genuinely writing this post to say that I have received 100% great service since joining Krystal*.
If you want to double check that my website is hosted by Krystal, put my domain in this Whois domain checker. Alternatively, you can check the below details and you will see the name servers are pointing to Krystal:

Name Server: NS2.KRYSTAL.CO.UK
Why I recommend Krystal Hosting
There are a number of reasons that I would fully recommend Krystal. The first being that you can either call, raise a ticket or start an online chat with them and they answer really quickly.
The queries I have had range from transferring WordPress websites to Krystal and when my site wasn’t loading quite right. The queries were resolved efficiently and politely.
As far as cost goes, the domains are slightly higher than I have paid in the past but I would rather pay a little extra for better service. It is true that you get what you pay for.
My hosting option is the Ruby plan as I host a number of websites for my friends.
All the sites I run are always online and the very rare occasion there has been a problem, this has been fixed pretty quickly. There will always be the odd problem with a server whoever runs it.
Krystal’s up-time is 99%. I can believe it too.
Another thing I like about Krystal is that if you refer a friend you can share £10 worth of discount/credit. I usually give a code so my friends save £5 on a domain name and I have £5 towards my hosting cost.
If you were to join Krystal and also wanted to shout about the service, you can become an affiliate with Affiliate Window. I won’t lie to you, I am an affiliate for Krystal but this post is more to do with the fact I am promoting their service because they are one of the best, most reliable and genuine web hosts around.
I have taken the time to write this post so other people can see that I recommend Krystal, can prove that my site is with them and can honestly say you won’t regret giving them a go.
The discount code if you want to save £5 is JUST5.
You can put the £5 towards web hosting or a domain name. No catch, straight up discount code that you can enter at the checkout.
So there you have it, my take on the best UK web hosting provider. Krystal Hosting* are definitely one of the best hosting providers available.
Over and out.
