TL; DR: Krypton Networks is on a mission to provide affordable and powerful hosting for gamers, developers, and SMBs. The company, founded in 2017, serves up affordable, reliable, and highly performant hosting that appeals to all types of customers. Moving forward, Krypton Networks is poised to run laps around its competition thanks to its expert knowledge in Garry’s Mod and other special hosting interests, and a highly attentive support team.
Bright ideas are ageless. The internet is bursting with stories that back up this premise — such as an 82-year-old working to reinvent water purification, and a high school science student who designed a mobile heartbeat monitor.
In the hosting space, Lachlan Laypang and William Morrow also prove that age is just a number. The two hosting entrepreneurs were just teenagers when they launched Krypton Networks in 2017.
“At the time, Will and I were really young,” said Lachlan, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Krypton Networks. “I was 14 and he was 16 — and that was just four years ago,” “We were all about offering powerful yet affordable services.”
What started as a hobby quickly transformed into a growing company. With a simple mission and a small but agile team, Krypton Networks has now expanded its product offerings from gaming servers to shared and cloud hosting solutions. The company backs these offerings with high performance, reliability, expert knowledge in specialized hosting interests, and an attentive support team.
Neither founder is old enough to buy a drink in the United States, even after four years of successfully running a hosting platform with its own custom-built panel. But that doesn’t matter — the young entrepreneurs are determined to keep moving forward with a mix of passion, drive, and talent. These characteristics will help them continue pursuing their dreams to the ultimate benefit of Krypton Networks customers.
Individual and Business Solutions Keep Clients Up and Running
While Krypton Networks began with the realization that hosting prices were far too high, the company is also committed to offering fast and secure solutions with a 99.99% uptime guarantee.
“Our services are hosted redundantly,” Lachlan said. “We have filtering appliances stopping any attacks, so our uptime is in the ‘99-point-how-many-nines-can-you-count’ range. The high uptime rate is a key aspect of our product.”
On the security front, Krypton Networks offers hosting plans built to protect customers from denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. These attacks — in which web criminals use multiple systems to overwhelm a network with a flood of traffic — have become all too common in recent years.
According to Cloudflare, the frequency and sophistication of these attacks increased significantly in 2020. Network-layer attacks doubled from the first to second quarter that year and again from the second to third. Ransom-driven DDoS (RDDoS) attacks are also on the rise.
To protect customers from such threats, Krypton Networks provides essential anti-DDoS solutions on all hosting plans at no additional cost. The hosting company runs all its DDoS solutions through Corero, which blocks common attacks up to 100 gigabits per second at the London location and up to 20 gigabits per second in the U.S. Originally used to respond to game-specific attacks, Krypton Networks’ DDoS protection also defends businesses against attacks so they can stay up and running without financial impacts.
The common thread between all of these benefits is peace of mind. With the help of Krypton Networks, businesses can keep their websites and private data safe and gamers don’t have to worry about hackers breaking into servers.
The hosting company’s accessible price points also create a stress-free customer experience. From the beginning, Krypton Networks aimed to offer premium products below market cost. The company’s founders recognize that it’s easy enough to find reliable, high-speed servers — but a different task entirely to find them at budget-friendly rates.
Krypton Elite: Premium Gaming Services
Krypton Networks is known for offering specialized support for games like Garry’s Mod and Counter-Strike. Soon, the hosting company will become one of the first to offer servers dedicated to Hytale, a creative sandbox game built in the same vein as Minecraft.
The game, currently in beta, has been in production since 2015. Lachlan said users are anticipating the hosting company’s support for Hytale — because they know that choosing a reliable host can make or break the gaming experience.
Krypton Networks serves a great share of everyday users and gamers who don’t have extensive budgets for online play. Now, the company is expanding its options with the launch of its premium game hosting plan: Krypton Elite.
Designed for those seeking the best in game hosting, Krypton Elite is the ultimate choice for any user who isn’t willing to let gaming lag damper their experience. “We released Krypton Elite for users who have higher performance requirements, whether to support more addons/plugins, higher inbound traffic, or just better performance all around,” Lachlan told us.
Of course, all Krypton Networks packages boast up-to-date technologies, fast network speeds, and reliable performance. On the business side, for example, the company uses Intel-based technology, provides free access to cPanel, and offers ample bandwidth.
Krypton Network’s game hosting plans are run through a customized gaming panel that simplifies the user experience and even makes it fun.
By offering such a comprehensive suite of hosting solutions for gamers and businesses alike, Krypton Networks is furthering its mission to provide affordable, stable, and DDoS-protected game, web, and cloud hosting.
Expanding Cloud Options and Responding to Customer Needs
By listening carefully to its customer base, Krypton Networks discovered that avid gamers were seeking expanded cloud hosting offerings to support an even more outstanding experience.
Fortunately, with a small, lean development team, the company doesn’t have to spend months researching and planning its next move. Instead, team members can run full throttle in any direction their customers demand. “More experienced gamers often ask for additional cloud solutions, which is why we’re expanding in that area to provide customers access to all the functionality and control they need,” Lachlan said.
Customers also remain close to the support team at Krypton Networks. While the hosting industry is notorious for poor support, reaching out and providing feedback to decision-makers is an everyday occurrence for customers at Krypton Networks.
“We see support tickets with basic suggestions all the time,” Lachlan said. “For example, one customer asked us to shift from sending back ups to their machine to sending them to S3. And with a small, agile team, we started responding to this need immediately.”
Instead of leaving basic features in beta testing for years, Krypton Networks is expanding its services monthly and daily. In turn, its customers receive top-notch, continually updated hosting services at affordable prices.
