FAQ/Frequently Asked Questions
How do I buy a domain name?
If you're planning to create a website, you can opt directly for a website pack that includes a free domain name as well as hosting for your future website that can be quickly and easily installed. You can also register a domain name if you want, for example, to first just have a custom email address.
How to host a website?
A domain name is an essential element for creating a website. To host a website, you need, then, to purchase a domain name so that your website has an address but also, purchase website hosting services. We offer different website packs to:
1. Open an online shop
2. Create a showcase website
3. Create a blog
By choosing one of our website packs, your free domain name will be automatically linked to your hosting, and your website will be quickly and easily installed. You can also buy web hosting by itself without the free domain name, if, for example, you already have a domain name at another provider. You will need to manually configure the DNS records at your domain name provider or you can transfer your domain name to Gandi.
How much does a domain name cost?
The price of a domain name will vary depending on the domain ending (TLD). There are several country-specific domain extensions, for example, .uk for the United Kingdom or .be for Belgium (ccTLD). There are also generic domain endings like .net or .site that don't have a specific focus (gTLD).
If you're planning to create a website, you can get a domain name for free, included with your hosting with our website packs. You can also register a domain name by itself if you want, for example, to first just have a custom email address. We sell several less expensive domains on promo.
How do I create a website?
It's very easy! You just need a domain name and web hosting, then link the two. At Gandi we offer website packs, where the web hosting and free domain name, are automatically linked. That way, you can quickly and easily create your website.
What should I do if I already have a domain name?
Gandi's website packs include a free domain name from a list of more than 80 domain name extensions. If you already have a domain name at another provider, you can choose WordPress web hosting or Prestashop web hosting. You'll then have to manually configure your DNS records at your domain name provider.
How do I choose a domain name?
A domain name consists of two main parts:
1. Your brand name or the identity you choose, both simple and say to remember
2. Suffixed by an ending called a TLD
There are domain endings specific to countries, for example, .mx for Mexico and .fr for France (ccTLD). On the other hand, you can find general use domain names without a national focus (gTLD): .com for commercial, or .org for non-profit organizations.
Consider how you will be using your domain name. How will you communicate it verbally to customers or those you now? How will you share it on social media?
