What is PaaS?

PaaS, or “Platform as a Service,” is a hosting solution that enables cloud computing using online web development tools. PaaS hosting solutions are designed to help you develop websites and web apps with only a minimal amount of time setting up and configuring your instance. Using a PaaS solution lets you bypass many of the steps necessary for deploying projects online, including managing hardware, dependencies, and installing the web development tools you need.

Let’s say you wish to create a new blog or website for your business, using WordPress. While you’re very familiar with WordPress, you don’t have any web development skills outside of the use of a CMS like WordPress. In this case, Gandi’s PaaS Simple Hosting solution is your best option. In this example, we would initialize your instance on our servers, then install PHP, MySQL, and WordPress for you so that you’re ready to start working with the tools you’re familiar with without any hassle.

With this solution, you can create an account at Gandi, generate a Simple Hosting instance, and instantly be provided with all the tools you’re perfectly comfortable working with, without ever worrying about any of the programs running in the back-end.

What are the PaaS hosting solutions available at Gandi?

Our Simple Hosting offer is a very affordable PaaS hosting solution. When creating your Simple Hosting instance, you will have the choice between WordPress (PHP), Node.js (Javascript), Python, or Ruby. Our servers are preconfigured and come with 50 GB of free storage space that may be upgraded to up to 1TB. There isn’t a hard limit to how much bandwidth you may use, meaning that you will never face any additional costs if you experience a spike in visitors.

You may choose between several differently-sized Simple Hosting packs with options from S+ to XXL, according to what your websites and web applications will need to properly function. If your plan turns out to be too small for your needs, you can upgrade to a larger sized pack at any time, smoothly and without any server downtime.

All of our Simple Hosting offers also include a free SSL certificate for each of the domain names you host with us. These domain names may be purchased directly on Gandi or via another provider, and they can be easily linked to your websites.
