1. #gandiV5: Coming soon
Gandi V5 is, of course, still a work in progress. We still have to get a couple more features ported over to the new platform and while the features on the new platform are in place, there's still some minor tweaks we'd like to make on the interface and site design.
That said, as we're putting these last pieces into place, we're getting closer and closer to completion.
See what's left to roll out and when to expect it: news.gandi.net/en/2017/08/gandiv5-ready-for-takeoff/?pk_campaign=nl-201709-en-uk
2. Simple Hosting S+ now available
One of those pieces we'd like to highlight is that our new SSL certificate management interface is now available on Gandi V5.
Along with the introduction of this new interface, we're also introducing a new Simple Hosting instance size: S+. A size S+ instance allows you to install SSL certificates (not available on size S), without having to upgrade to a size M, which often includes more resources than those who manage smaller websites need, and is therefore not as economical.
Find out how you can benefit from these new possibilities: news.gandi.net/en/2017/08/ssl-certificates-on-gandiv5/?pk_campaign=nl-201709-en-uk
3. Closing FR-SD2: a new migration plan
And looking at our objectives for the rest of the year, now that FR-SD3 is up and running and FR-SD5 and FR-SD6 are on their way, in anticipation of closing FR-SD2 later this year, we're suggesting that those hosting on FR-SD2 start the process of migration now.
Since we first communicated about this closure and the required migration, we've made some tweaks to the process, especially some we made by popular demand after hearing your input.
Follow the new migration plan: news.gandi.net/en/2017/08/fr-sd2-closure-and-migration-plan/?pk_campaign=nl-201709-en-uk
4. Gandi Events
At the beginning of this month, Gandi participated in the APNIC 44 conference in Taichung, Taiwan.
APNIC is the Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre, the regional registry for the entire Asia-Pacific region.
Among other things, Gandi attended talks about the Root Zone KSK Rollover and IPv6 and security.

And coming up at the beginning of next month, from 5 through 7 October, Gandi will be one of the sponsors of the 12th edition of Paris Web. Several of our team members will be attending, so if you plan on going yourselves, let us know! We'd be happy to meet up.
