Registering a Domain Name

While it's important to put thought into choosing the right domain name, as soon as you have an idea of what you're looking for registering a domain name is simple and quick. You will need a totally unique name that will help internet users find you on the web. You will want to take care to select a domain name that fits your brand and industry.

An extension must be added to the name itself in the form of ‘.com’, ‘.co.uk’, ‘.shop’, etc. A wide variety of extensions are now available, which will allow you to find one that fits your needs. You also can often find your desired name in an alternate extension. For example, even if ‘example.com’ is already taken, you can reserve ‘example.org’ instead.

Choosing a host

For a website to be available on the Internet at all times, it needs to be ‘hosted’.

This will allow your website to have the optimal amount of storage for your needs. The services of a web host will also ensure that your website remains accessible based on expected traffic.

Several options are available, depending on the plan you selected. You can host one or several websites on a single instance and benefit from scalable storage, so you will always have enough space. We also include SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth and e-mail tech support with all our offers.

Choosing a CMS

A Content Management System – or CMS – allows you to design a website without mastering a programming language. Thanks to the tool sets offered by WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, you can:

  • Create pages for your website.
  • Configure the features you choose (shop, showcase, image gallery, contact forms, etc.)
  • Ensure quality search engine optimization.
  • Personalize the aesthetics of your website.

The benefits of opting for a hosting solution developed for your CMS

By choosing a hosting solution built for your particular CMS, you can simplify the process of designing your website, and enjoy these addtional benefits:

  • Install your website quickly and easily.

FAQ / frequently asked questions

Check Gandi's domain name price list and see all available domain endings to find the best price:

  1. We provide hosting services of different sizes corresponding to your site's traffic.
  2. Once you have hosting, you will have an FTP server address (000000@sftp.dc0.gpaas.net), a user (username), and a password
  3. You can then upload your site's files to the server.
  4. In order for your site to have an address, you'll also need to buy a domain name
  1. Choose a domain ending that's geo-localized (.us, .ca, .uk, .nyc, or .london), linked to what you do (.org, .tech, .store, .site), or targeted by product or services (.gay, .best, or .art)
  2. Choose a short and easy-to-remember domain name that uses keywords, or references your brand name or industry
  3. Choose a domain that already has some history (a reserved domain, an expired domain, etc.) to take advantage of the SEO that Google gives to sites that have been online for a few years. Use Gandi.net's WHOIS to find who owns a domain that's already registered
  4. Add an SSL certificate to your domain for prioritization over sites that lack SSL

You can migrate to a new domain name. Here's how:
