Frequently asked questions
How do I choose web hosting?
There are many options on the market, at almost any price. Obviously, they aren't all the same, but in general, there are hosting platforms that are right-sized for the needs of personal websites, and not other kinds of websites. The main risk is that you might choose a solution that's either the wrong "size" (too expesnvie, or not powerful enough), not adapted very well to your needs (e.g. requiring a high level of expertise), or both!
There are several types of web hosting, and each of them meet a different set of needs.
- Shared web hosting (multiple sites share a single server). The structure of Gandi's comparable hosting service is a little different, especially in that it uses dedicated resources. Our goal is to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites over time and to offer you right-sized web hosting solutions according to your needs. That's why on each of our web hosting options, you can add data storage space, or you can temporarily increase the allotted processing power (for spikes in traffic), or permanently update the configuration (if your needs have permanently changed).
- VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting is the most complete, affordable Cloud hosting solution. Gandi offers several VPS hosting solutions that can be adapted to your needs by showing greater flexibility of use. You administer your server as you see fit and can configure it and deploy it with all your applications.
Which web host should I choose?
To host a website, you need to use a web hosting server. You'll also need to choose a web hosting provider. Finding a web hosting solution that meets your needs is crucial! There are several different solutions out there, and they are all priced differently. Obviously, they're not all the same, but nonetheless, certain hosting platforms are built to respond to particular needs more than others. The danger is in choosing a solution that's not well fitted to your needs (not powerful enough or too expensive), that otherwise isn't suitable (requiring considerable expertise), or worse yet, both!
There are several types of web hosting services, each with its own standards. Whether you're looking for hosting for your WordPress blog, a more complete professional hosting solution for e-commerce or dedicated servers for creating a mobile app or an SaaS service, Gandi offers the services you need.
