Frequently asked questions

Your domain name is the cornerstone of everything that you'll build online and is the foundation on which you will build your website. Essentially, your domain name is your address on the internet. It's with your domain name that your users will be able to find not just your website, but also your email address, and any other similar service that you associate to it. On a technical level, a domain name relates a human-readable name (your domain name) to a computer-readable address (a series of numbers called an IP address). Need help picking a domain name? Our domain suggest tool suggests alternatives that we think will be more relevant for you. And if you're mostly just interested in a good deal on a low-priced domain name, you can find the best deals of the moment on our Promotions page.

You should generally choose a domain name that meets these four criteria:

- Meaningful

- Easy to remember

- No strange spelling or grammar

- Descriptive

The best way to approach choosing a domain name is to think about how you're going to use it. You'll probably share it on social media, tell it to people you know, maybe print it on business cards, or plaster it on billboards. At the same time, people will also find you by searching on search engines. Verify whether your perfect domain name is available with our search tool or verify who owns it using our Whois lookup tool.

Gandi offers several web hosting options — our Simple Hosting PaaS (Platform as a Service) option intended for small- and medium-sized businesses and individuals, and our VPS solution aimed at experts who want to have full control and prefer to implement their own hosting infrastructure. These professional solutions bring together the power of dedicated resources, a large degree of flexibility when it comes to adjusting the size of the server, and optimum data security on a truly innovative network architecture.

  • We offer PaaS Simple Hosting web hosting services of different sizes corresponding to the amount of traffic your website gets
  • Once you have hosting, you'll have an FTP server address (, a user (username), and a password
  • For a site that has one address, you should also buy a domain name

With our VPS servers, build and host your own infrastructure using Gandi's ultra-flexible cloud solutions:

  • Billing per day
  • 2-minute delivery
  • Wide range of configuration options
  • Re-size your server at will
