  • Made-to-measure storage

    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 1 TB of additional storage to your web hosting instance (€0.18/GB/month). From 20 GB (Starter) to 200 GB (Business) of data storage for your website. With Business hosting, increase your web hosting storage capacity up to 1 TB of storage (0.22 € per GB/month).

Best web hosting solutions for all types of websites

Gandi provides you the possibility to adapt your Pack to the category of website you own so you can enjoy a tailored solution. Web hosting requirements are indeed not the same in every case, so some options that provide the best hosting for some situations do not provide the best hosting for others. If you want to host a personal blog mainly containing text-type content and which only receives a few hundred visitors a month, your needs will be different from those of an online shop. E-commerce hosting will, for instance, provide solutions regarding such issues as stock management or the ordering process.

Whether you need to host a showcase site, an e-commerce site or a blog, we can provide you with a dedicated solution.

Choose your web hosting by language

Gandi also allows you to web host your website based on the programming language used to develop it. The best hosting solution for you should match your needs, whether you have:

  • A PHP website designed using one of the most prominent CMSs;
  • A website integrating a real-time system to be hosted on a NodeJS server;
  • A platform made from scratch and developed under a specific framework;
  • A personal site created with Python, we offer a suitable hosting solution.

Frequently asked questions

Our hosting solution is built a little differently, since each instance has its own private Linux container (LXC). The reason for doing this, is to guarantee you the best hosting performance for your websites, to guarantee this performance in the long run, and to securely isolate your hosting environment from other customers.

Yes, you can create several websites on the same Web Hosting instance. This is also one of the advantages of Gandi's hosting plans. You just need to be sure to choose a the best hosting plan in terms of power to meet the needs of all your websites.

Yes. You can install WordPress directly during the process of creating your WordPress Hosting instance, or even after that, by using the option for this on Gandi's website. You can manually install other CMSes like Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, etc., on your Web Hosting instance. We have guides available on our website to help you do this, in addition to others that you can find directly on the internet related to the installation of your CMS.

With the Starter hosting pack, the programming language and database are, by default, set to PHP and MySQL. With the Advanced, Pro, and Business packs, you can choose from several options (PHP, Python, Node // PostgreSQL, MySQL). If the notions of language and database are not ideas you're comfortable with, the "standard" configuration is the best hosting configuration for you, which comes with the PHP language and MySQL database. These technologies are the most frequently used by websites. In this case, choose "Standard" on the order page.

If you don't know how many visitors will go to your site, no worries. From Gandi's administrative interface, you can easily upgrade your website hosting. We suggest starting with a Starter or Advanced pack and upgrade to a higher plan if you see that you need more power to handle the number of visitors to your websites.

Generally, a web hosting, or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) plan is the simplest way to host a site. PaaS hosting doesn't give a lot of control of the hosting infrastructure to the owner of the website. Which is great if you're not a technical expert, but those looking to more finely tune their use of resources, and control their hosting environment should consider using cloud hosting, a VPS, or dedicated hosting.
