By choosing Gandi or your web hosting, if your domain is also registered at Gandi and uses our LiveDNS platform,the link between your domain name and your website hosting is made easy, since we can update the DNS records automatically for you at the same time you create your site.
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).
Simple WordPress installation
If you want to install a WordPress website on your web hosting instance, we automatically install it for you. Best of all, it only takes about 1 minute.
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.
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).

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.
Gandi's website 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.
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 — whichever is the best hosting location for your needs.
The Best Hosting Solutions for Different Website Types
When it comes to hosting a website, not all solutions are created equal. This is why we have at heart to provide a wide array of hosting offers to choose the best hosting option for you according to your specific needs.

Best Hosting Solutions for Each Type of Website
Gandi gives 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.
Web Hosting Solutions for Various Languages
Gandi also allows you to host your website based on the programming language used to develop it. Thus, 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
What is the difference between Gandi Web Hosting and a traditional shared-hosting offer?
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.
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 the best hosting in terms 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 Web Hosting instance?
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.
Can I install a CMS such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, or PrestaShop?
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.
How do I know which language and database configuration to choose?
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 the most frequently used by websites. In this case, choose "Standard" on the order page.
I don't know how much traffic my website will get. Which is the best hosting instance plan for me?
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).
