Automatic linking to your domain names
By choosing Gandi as a web host, if your domain is also registered at Gandi and uses our LiveDNS platform, the link between your domain name and your hosting is made easy, since we can update the DNS records automatically for you upon the creation of your site.
You can change the power (from S+ à XXL) allocated to your instance with a simple click in order to meet the needs of a spike or general increase in traffic.
Security: Free SSL Certificates
Today it is absolutely essential to protect your site with an SSL Certificate. With our S+ instances or higher, generate free SSL certificates to secure data transmission and reassure visitors of your sites. Learn more about SSL certificates.
Most of the time, during the creation of a personal website or blog, a few GB of storage is enough, but if you need more, you can add up to 1TB of additional storage to your instance ($0.35/GB/month).
Choice of language and database
Choose between PHP, Node.js, Python, and Ruby for your programming language, as well as your preferred database technology: MySQL or PostgreSQL. You can create an unlimited amount of databases (within the total storage capacity of your instance).
Gandi's hosting solutions are accelerated by our use of "Varnish" technology. This consists of caching your web pages, images, or other static objects that are most frequently viewed, which reduces the response time, and increases the speed with which your website pages load for your visitors.
Simple WordPress installation
If you want to install a WordPress website on your instance, it is done automatically for you, and takes only about 1 minute. More info.
Easily recover backups of previous versions of your website's files, thanks to our automatic Snapshots system. It's free!
Located in Europe
Transparency is at the heart of what we do. Your website is hosted in one of Gandi's European datacenters. You can choose between France or Luxembourg.
Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between Gandi Simple Hosting and a traditional shared-hosting offer?
Our hosting solution is built a little differently as each instance has its own private Linux container (LXC). The reason for doing this is to guarantee you the best possible performance for your websites, to guarantee this performance in the long run, and to securely isolate your hosting environment from other customers.
The other difference is that our system allows hosting plans to be scaled to meet your needs (not all websites require 200 GB of disk space), all while offering you a maximum degree of flexibility. In this way, each of our web hosting plans allows you to add storage space and even temporarily (in the event of a spike in traffic) or permanently change the power allocated to your hosting.
Can I host more than one site on the same Gandi Simple Hosting instance?
Yes, you can create several websites on the same Simple Hosting instance. This is also one of the advantages of Gandi's hosting offer. You just need to be sure to choose a hosting plan that is powerful enough to meed the needs of all your websites.
Can I install a CMS such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, or PrestaShop?
Yes. For WordPress, this can be installed directly during the creation process of your WordPress Simple Hosting instance, or even after that, by using the special option on Gandi's website. For the other CMS such as Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, etc. these can be manually installed on your Simple Hosting instance. We have some guides to help you with this, in addition to others that you can find directly on the internet related to the installation of your CMS.
How do I know which language and database configuration to choose?
If you are not at ease with the notions of language and database, we recommend that you choose the "standard" configuration, which comes with the PHP language and MySQL database. These technologies are the ones used the most frequently by websites.In this case, choose "Standard" on the order page.
I don't know how much traffic my website will get. What instance plan should I choose?
If you don't know how many visitors will go to your site, no worries. We recommend that you start with an S+ or M plan and upgrade to a higher plan if you see that you need more power to handle the number of visitors to your websites. Note however that if you choose "France" as a datacenter location, you will not be able to move your website's hosting to a different datacenter location (you would need to create a new instance in the desired datacenter location).
