View plans and prices

Every Krystal OpenBiblio hosting plan allows you to apply a free SSL certificate to ALL websites you host with us. Your SSL can easily be activated via your cPanel control panel and enables your website to use https:// in the address bar; every SSL certificate issued is 100% individual and not shared with anyone else.

Benefits of an SSL certificate include:

  • Allows the use of https:// in the address bar
  • Ecommerce: Provide secure 256-bit transactions for customer data and credit card payments.
  • SEO: Better search results as Google likes secure sites so an SSL certificate is essential for better search visibility.
  • Conversions: Customers are more likely to trust & purchase from a secure site that uses HTTPS.

If you're a business you can also upgrade your SSL certificate to an Extended Verification (EV) SSL which comes with additional benefits and added protection.

Moving your OpenBiblio website away from your existing host to our optimised cloud hosting platform is simple. Our OpenBiblio migrations team will work with you to make the process as painless as possible and get your website moved over with minimum downtime.

Our migration process:

  • Order a OpenBiblio hosting plan.
  • Let us know your existing cPanel/website login information.
  • We'll arrange a 'moving time' that’s convenient for you.
  • Once agreed, your website data will be transferred across.
  • Finally, enjoy your new web hosting platform.

We proudly host and manage 48,311 websites, coupled with over 14 years of hosting experience we've certainly encountered many types of website migrations in our time. Moving an existing cPanel based account is free and our preferred choice and can be done relatively quickly, but we can also cater for alternative and complex setups too. So be sure to contact us as this may incur an additional fee, if you have any questions prior to purchasing and we'll be happy to assist you.

All our managed cloud hosting packages include free weekly/monthly backups of your OpenBiblio website.

Web hosting FAQs

Yes, WordPress and over 200 web applications are included and fully supported, plus it's really simple to install. Choose between ‘auto install’ on sign up, or install it after you’ve signed up to our cloud hosting packages via cPanel (it only takes 3 clicks!)
It’s dead easy. If you decide to upgrade your plan later on, you do can it directly through our client area. If you’re looking for a more powerful, specialised option and need help choosing, simply contact our support team, who can organise the upgrade and assist with migration to your new server.
We maintain multiple automated backups of your data. Files and databases are backed up regularly and you are able to restore these via a web interface within your hosting control panel (cPanel).
Whether you're looking to move your site from another cPanel hosting provider, a non-cPanel account, or have no idea at all, just head on over to our migrations page for more information.
Yes - if you decide to try us out on a monthly basis and then want to move to an annual or tri-annual subscription to take advantage of the generous discounts available, it’s not a problem. Just let our accounts team know, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Our unlimited plan is designed for small business or personal use. It’s appropriate for the majority of users and we see very few people abusing it. These plans are not suitable for storage of private files or file sharing or for users attempting to resell or host large numbers of websites. Heavy resources users, in terms of disk space, bandwidth, CPU and memory will be contacted to help them upgrade to a more suitable plan or one of our cloud VPS servers. We will never cut you off without warning - but abusers will be suspended to protect our other responsible users.
We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards, Visa debit, PayPal, and manual bank transfer.
