Google Cloud Hosting: Can you really host a website free of charge?
Although I have already shown you how to host your website on Google Cloud virtual machine instance in a previous video, this video will demonstrate how you can do it for free.
It can be used for small blogs or static websites. However, it has bursting capabilities. This allows VM to use additional CPU power for a short period of time.
There is a problem with the billing system. Set it to 20-25. This should give you enough space for a static WordPress website. Google now charges you one to two dollars per month for an external IP address. The free tier only allows for oneexternal IP addresses per month, so you don’t need to worry.
The traffic free tier is not allowed to support 500 visitors per month. This is because the traffic free tier is limited to one gigabyte of network traffic. If your webpage is more than 2 megabytes in size, you won’t be able to serve them.
There can be up to 5GB disk snapshot storage. This is sufficient for one snapshot, unless you have lots of assets like images or videos. After hosting my website using setupabovefor several months, here is my bill. The first is the 1.5 dollar external IP address charge. This is offset by the free tier under spinning-based discount below. The remaining costs are network traffic. These costs are around 30cs. I think this is quite affordable considering that my website gets around 20,000 visits per month.
You still get free credit from Google, so it will be offset under the promotion category. This is a great chance for someone who wants to host a website on Google Cloud for free. I had around 60,000 visitors per month with the f1 micro instance before I decided to upgrade. However, you will need to set up CDN as well as use the cache plug-in.
This video will help you reach that number. I hope you guys enjoy it. If you’d like to see more web tutorials and devtips, subscribe to this channel. Thank you for watching. See you next time.
