Creating a website at Gandi

Registering a domain name

While it's important to put thought into choosing the right domain name when you make a website, as soon as you have an idea of what you're looking for registering a domain name is simple and quick. For website creation, having a totally unique name that will help internet users find you on the web is essential. You will want to make sure to select a domain name that fits your brand and industry.

A domain ending must be added to the name itself in the form of ‘.com,’ ‘.co.uk,’ ‘.shop,’ etc. A wide variety of domain endings are now available, which will allow you to find one that fits your website creation needs. You also can often find your desired name in an alternate domain ending. For example, even if ‘example.com’ is already taken, you can reserve ‘example.org’ instead.

Choosing a host

In order to make a website and have it be available on the internet, it needs to be ‘hosted.’

This will allow you to create your own website with the optimal amount of storage for your needs. The services of a web host will also ensure that your website remains accessible based on expected traffic.

Several options are available, depending on your website creation needs and the plan you select. If you want to create your own website — or several — you can host one or several of them on a single hosting instance and take advantage of scalable storage, so that you will always have enough space for your website creation needs. We also include SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth and email tech support to help you make a website with our products.

Choosing a CMS for website creation

A Content Management System – or CMS – allows you to create your own website without having to master a programming language. Thanks to the tool sets offered by WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, you can:

  • Create pages for your website
  • Configure the features you choose (shop, showcase, image gallery, contact forms, etc.) for website creation
  • Ensure quality search engine optimization
  • Personalize the aesthetics of your website

FAQ / frequently asked questions

Check Gandi's domain name price list and see all available domain endings to find the best price:

  1. We provide hosting services of different sizes corresponding to your site's traffic.
  2. Once you have hosting, you will have an FTP server address (000000@sftp.dc0.gpaas.net), a user (username), and a password
  3. You can then make a website by uploading your site's files to the server.
  4. In order for your site to have an address, you'll also need to buy a domain name
  1. Choose a domain ending that's geo-localized (.us, .ca, .uk, .nyc, or .london), linked to what you do (.org, .tech, .store, .site), or targeted by product or services (.gay, .best, or .art)
  2. Choose a short and easy-to-remember domain name that uses keywords, or references your brand name or industry
  3. Choose a domain that already has some history (a reserved domain, an expired domain, etc.) to take advantage of the SEO that Google gives to sites that have been online for a few years. Use Gandi.net's WHOIS to find who owns a domain that's already registered
  4. Add an SSL certificate to your domain for prioritization over sites that lack SSL

You can migrate to a new domain name. Here's how:
