The Gandi Community

Buy credits for a third party

IaaS customers are now able to use a new feature that allows purchasing credits for someone else.

We have implemented this feature with three purposes in mind:

  • The many opensource projects hosted at Gandi which could benefit from sponsors who buy hosting credits for them,
  • Websites that host communities (videogames, cultural, associations, etc.) and would like to ask for active help from their members,
  • If you manage servers for your customers, you can now ask them to pay for their server and only bill for the service you provide.

The system works by indicating the Gandi handle that you want to buy credit for either during the online order process or by going directly to (be sure to change the handle at the end!), and puttting this link on your site for example.
