Free Hosting for Startups

UK business startups can receive free hosting for 1 year

Are you a Startup that needs hosting?

If you’re a UK business less than 1 year old we’ll host your Killer App, website or idea FREE FOR A YEAR.

We’ll even scale your solution from acorn to oak, supporting you no matter how big you get.

Why? We want you to succeed.

20 years ago we started out in business with just £127.50’s worth of CD stock and a dream.

Today we employ over 50 hosting heroes, service 34,000 happy clients and are growing at 30%. If we can do it, so can you.

We believe business is about more than just profit, and that successful companies have a responsibility to put back in to their communities. So here we are, hoping to promote and support grass-roots entrepreneurship in the UK.

Of course we hope that when you succeed you’ll remember our leg up and we’ll have formed a life-long relationship, but that’s just a bonus. It’s the trying that counts.

The "small" print

  • You must be a UK company registered at Companies House within the last year. (if you’re about to register contact us)
  • There’s a £1 setup fee. (this is charged to allow us to validate your identity and prevent fraud)
  • We’ll put you on our sterling Sapphire Business Hosting plan by default - worth £349.99/year. (but we’ll scale you to your own VPS Cloud if needed inc. load balancing, clustering etc)
  • You’ll need to link to us on your site. (and any social media activity you can generate would be warmly received!)

  • 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 :)

  • Krystal - clearly the best.

    If you are migrating and find yourself up in the air without a trusty pilot, the Krystal help team are your air traffic control and will bring you to a safe landing. Why can't every company do it this way? You may have an issue to resolve. If you choose to pick up the 'phone (yes, you can speak with a human being at Krystal) : 1. You get an immediate response - that's every time you need to call, or email. 2. There is an articulate, intelligible, intelligent, knowledgeable, patient person who will see clearly through your digital fog. Thank you Alex, Jack, Jack F., Jordan.

  • 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!

  • 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.
