Gandi.net Review - Expert and User Insights by Paid Customers

A few words from Gandi.net

Gandi is a domain name registrar, a web host, and an email and SSL certificate provider whose guiding ambition is to make the internet accessible to all. But above all, Gandi is a French success story built on customer trust and word-of-mouth recommendations. It all began with only a few pioneers of the free internet, and 20 years later, it became a small but mighty internation...Read Moreal business with 150 employees spread over three continents; with values that remain unchanged and make Gandi unique and independent on the market.

Gandi, c’est un bureau d’enregistrement de noms de domaine, un hébergeur et un fournisseur de mail et certificat SSL qui n'a qu'une ambition : rendre le web accessible à tous. Mais c’est surtout une success story à la française bâtie sur la confiance client et le bouche-à-oreille, où l’histoire commence avec quelques pionniers de l’Internet libre et se transforme 20 ans plus tard en une PME de 150 salariés répartis sur 3 continents ; et des valeurs toujours intactes, qui la rendent unique et indépendante sur le marché.

Great Service

I have just started using Gandi, and so far am very happy. I had an email issue over New Years Eve and it was solved within 24 hours with such polite courteous service.
I also have a domain name with them, which comes with free email.

Misleading Pricing

They need to completely dump there old site.
I was planning on registering a domain for 10years but the issue is a $5yr turns to 12 a year if you register more than 1yr at a time.
I truly wanted to give them a chance but current...Read Morely do not see them as a honest company.
maybe they have some secret to doing things to get the best price but these days all these companies are out to scam you. especially who ever runs the TLD!.

Would I host with them? never, Why? because you can find better deals elsewhere.

David,
Try registering any site and compare it to price shown.
Ie even a 1.49 for first year crossed out 3.99 to 5.99avg.
Try tovregistervit for 10 years and it may show 115 instead of say 50 or 60. Which should be 1.49 yr 1, and 3.99...Read More for years 2-10. So total should equal say 37.40. But instead it would come out to say 116.80.

The old site was more accurate. The new site is ugly and not straight.

I went ahead and ragged elsewhere for less due to the issues.

Hi David,
Thank you for the additional information you provided here, I can how this sort of thing can be frustrating.

To be fully transparent, I must stress that the promotional offers made available on our platform are defin...Read Moreed by registries themselves, and not directly by Gandi. Generally these promotions are only granted to offer a discount for the first year of registration, and almost never include domain renewals. There is obviously a profit margin for Gandi with such promos, but it is minimal.

For the new site design, we are actively working on improving it every day, and issues like the one you mentioned will be fixed shortly.

I loved them till they dragged their feet for 9 months!!!

I love their TOS but getting help with them is impossible some times. We could not access our account because of a migration disaster on their end. I'm still working through the ticket and their support staff keeps quoting the sam...Read Moree lame advice over and over again. They can't read through the lines that their answer isn't working and their own server changes effed up everything for our account.

Even GoDaddy would be a better choice for us right now. I never thought I would say it but Gandi is aweful!

Kostas,
12h??? I used to be a gandi customer. I moved to siteground and their support is instant (chat, telephone, tickets) and they solve every problem (even if it is not stricktly hosting related) in a matter of minutes). Their performance is also much superior than gandi.
pablo
pablo,
Yup, siteground was great until they jacked up the cost of my hosting from $112/year to $400/year, without any changes to my hosting plan and while still offering the $112/year plan on their website. They were great until they tried to extort me.

Support

Nice support options

You can get in touch with their tech support through a ticketing system, email or a phone number.  They respond fairly quickly and are able to get your issues solved without any significant delay.  When looking on social media and other places I did not find any complaints about support, which is a good sign.

They also offer a FAQ with a lot of good information, and a good user forums system so you can get help from other people that use this hosting company.

Pricing

Average to slightly above average pricing

Gandi.net offers several different types of pricing packages to choose from ranging from $4.17+ per month and up.  There simple plans are broken down into 5 tiers.

Summary

Nice option for good hosting

Their web hosting services based on their strong privacy policy and customer support team is very good. They have a reliable and attentive team to help you stay satisfied with their services. Their plans are also very competitive compared to other well-known hosting providers. They have a cancel at any time contract as long as you do not break contract by violating the terms of service  in any way. I recommend Gandi.net to those in need of a reliable reseller and vps solution for their website.
