GANDI.net was one of the first domain name registrars approved by ICANN for .COM, .NET,.ORG, .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME, .BE, .FR, .EU domains in France. It now offers over 750 domain extensions and continues to add to this list on a regular basis. Gandi considers itself to be an ethical domain name registrar in an industry that has some 'grey' practices. It values the customers rights and privacy above all else and seeks to defend these wherever possible.
GANDI SAS was founded in 1999 by three individuals who were highly regarded in the French internet world (Pierre Beyssac, Laurent Chemla, and Valentin Lacambre). In 2005, Gandi was bought by an experienced European management team within the same field, in order to create an alternative and independent line of Internet services based around domain names. Gandi has offices in Paris (France), San Francisco (United States), Bissen (Luxembourg) and Taipei (Taiwan).
Gandi is devoted to providing tools for everyone to fulfill their online needs whatever that purpose may be. Whether it is to discuss their interests (travel, family, passions, etc.), to present products or services, or to simply express themselves. In short, we enable people to lay claim to a quality online presence, both personal and professional. We position ourselves as the next port of call after Internet access providers, since the domain name is the first step in creating your own piece of the Internet.
We manage more than 2.1 million domain names from 192 countries, which places us as first among domain name registrars in France, sixth in Europe, and in the top 15 worldwide.
Our clients range from individuals, associations and small companies, to public institutions (The European Union for example) and large multinational corporations. All have put confidence in us, and that is something we are deeply proud of.
On our website, you will not find empty promises, sneaky advertisements or unwelcome surprises hidden up our sleeves. We simply strive to provide a decent and honest service. Our wish is to provide you with the best products and services at the most reasonable prices. Furthermore, by keeping in direct contact with you (through our blog, Customer Care and FAQ's) this allows us to listen to your feedback and improve our services. The interests of our customers always come first since they will be the source of our success.
We invite you to take a look at the Gandi Supports page, to give you an idea of the kinds of external projects we support. It is here that we try to maintain the "soul" of our company through the support of various initiatives that we care about.
