Varnish web acceleration
The performance of Gandi's web hosting solutions is accelerated thanks to the use of a "Varnish" cache, that caches pages that are the most frequently visited on your site. This shortens the response time and increases the speed at which your pages load for your visitors.
Change the power of your hosting (from S+ to XXL) on the fly, by just clicking on a button. It is easy to meet the needs of a temporary or permanent increase in traffic.
Add up to 1TB of additional storage to your instance.
Hosted in France
Gandi's datacenters are located in France and in Luxembourg. By default, Prestashop Simple hosting installations are deployed in France.
Security: Free SSL certificate
With S+ instances or higher, you can generate free SSL certificates in order to secure data transmission and reassure your website visitors. Learn more about certificates.
Stay in control of your data
Your store is hosted at Gandi, and Prestashop is an open-source application. Only you have access to the data that is hosted, and so that of your customers, so that you are in control.
Keep control of your e-commerce website
Prestashop is an open-source application, and so you can access and modify the source code (if you have the knowledge and need to do so). This helps you guarantee the reliability and stability of your e-commerce website.

Prestashop web hosting, a dedicated tool for e-commerce sellers
What is PrestaShop?
To put it simply, PrestaShop is a technology used to create online shopping platforms for e-commerce websites. All web developers have to do is to set up various tabs such as promotions, best sellers or payment using a foreign currency.
Prestashop is quite simple to understand and get started with. The e-commerce website’s administrators – whether they’re web developers or not – have direct access to the back-office, from which they can manage their various add-ons. So what’s so special about Prestashop? Thanks to a number of automated functions available in the back-office, it is possible to do such things as creating a page, adding a button, deleting content, etc. without any technical knowledge.
The benefits of a Prestashop web hosting solution
Those who wish to deploy their own e-commerce website with Prestashop may choose Gandi’s Simple Hosting offer to do so. Gandi’s Prestashop web hosting solution is able to scale up in order to match increases in incoming traffic on your e-commerce website. While you may choose to launch your website using a Simple Hosting pack of size M, it is possible and even very simple to later upgrade it for a larger pack.
Optimized loading times for your web pages
Using “Varnish”, Gandi’s Prestashop web hosting solution can store your site’s most popular pages in cache. This way, your most visited pages are made quicker to load. This improvement in load times has been proven to bring great customer satisfaction.
100% secure European web-hosting service
In order to keep your data, as well as the various interactions and payments that take place on your e-commerce website safe, our servers are located in European data centers (specifically in the countries of France and Luxembourg). Our Prestashop web hosting solution is fully transparent, reliable and secure.
Simplified manual setup
While Wordpress’ set up process is done automatically, this is not true of other CMS such as Prestashop or Woocommerce. However, installing Prestashop on a Simple Hosting instance is very simple. All you will have to do is to go through the relevant tutorials we’ve put at our disposition and closely follow all of our instructions.
In short, choosing a Prestashop web hosting solution simplifies the processes one has to go through to deploy their e-commerce website. Prestashop distinguishes itself by being intuitive and simple to manage, making it an ideal alternative to more complex CMS such as Magento. The web hosting process may be done at very affordable prices and allows for a number of advantages.
Frequently asked questions
I don't know how much traffic my website will get. Which Prestashop Simple Hosting plan should I choose?
No worries, at Gandi, our hosting solutions are very flexible and allow you to easily and immediately change from one plan to another. We therefore recommend that you start with an M plan upgrade if you find that it is not enough to handle the load needed for the modules that you have installed and/or the traffic on your website.
Can I use the Prestashop modules?
Yes, after you have installed Prestashop, you have full administrator permissions. You therefore have access to all of the modules that are available for your version. However, you should take care to not install too many modules, which can needlessly slow your site's performance.
I am having problems accessing my Simple Hosting instance, what can I do?
If you are experiencing difficulties in accessing your Simple Hosting instance, the login information related to your Prestashop installation is available on the administration page of your Simple Hosting instance on Gandi's website. If you are totally stuck, you can always contact our support team.
I am having problems configuring my Prestashop boutique, what can I do?
For difficulties you may be experiencing in the use and configuration of your Prestashop boutique, you will need to turn to the Prestashop community and search among their online help resources, forums, and tutorials. Gandi's Simple Hosting customers do not have access to the Prestashop Enterprise service, or the security and advantages of that offer, which is provided directly by Prestashop.
Can I update the version of Prestashop that is installed?
Yes, you can and must regularly update the version of your Prestashop. This is done directly from your Prestashop interface. Be careful to verify, however, that your Simple Hosting instance and the version of PHP/MySQL are compatible with the new version of Prestashop before you proceed.
I don't have a domain name at Gandi, how can I install a Prestashop website?
If your domain name is with another provider, you can still choose a Simple Hosting instance and manually install Prestashop on it. You must then manually configure the DNS records at your domain name provider to link to it.
If you don't have a domain name at all, you will need to register one before you can install your website. You can do this here.
