WordPress Web Hosting with Gandi

Wordpress

Arguably the greatest CMS on the market, WordPress combines power and excellent SEO capabilities all while allowing those who don’t master programming languages to develop a high-quality website. Suitable WordPress hosting is essential to ensure your website will be as responsive and safe as possible without missing out on any aspect of WordPress’ impressive set of performances.

Essential Elements for Quality WordPress Hosting

Among the advantages Gandi provides in terms of WordPress web hosting, flexibility is one of the most important elements. Being able to adjust your offer at any time to allow for more power may prove crucial in the event of a traffic spike, be it temporary or permanent.

Having a WordPress hosting solution which is constantly updated and configured with the latest versions of PHP and MySQL is just as vital. Gandi generates SSL certificates for free.

Not all websites have the same storage requirements. That’s why we choose to offer up to 2 To of additional storage space to ensure even the heaviest websites can function optimally.

Gandi boosts its WordPress web hosting solutions thanks to a ‘Varnish’ cache. The latter caches the most frequently visited pages on your WordPress website to lower response time. This gives your visitors an even more pleasant experience.

In addition to these essential elements Gandi includes in your WordPress hosting offer, a simplified solution for your installation and administration process is also available.

You will start by selecting the domain name you wish to use for your site and then the installation process is carried out through several security emails you need to validate. Within a few minutes, your own personal WordPress is up and running.

By opting for this solution, the connection between your domain name and your WordPress site is also fully automated. This ensures that no mistakes can be made and that you can depend on the security and on the reliability of the link between your WordPress hosting and your site.

Finally, thanks to a system specifically designed for WordPress, you can be certain that all the plugins and extensions available under this CMS will be fully operational. These will allow your website to feature advanced functionalities.

Gandi’s hosting solutions make it possible to build the website you want without a single technical restriction.
