Yes, you hear that right. You don’t need to pay any money to host a website on Google Drive. All you need is a domain name, pre-built website, and Google account.
Before we move I just want to give a few pros and cons of hosting the website on Google Drive.
No need to pay any hosting (Free Hosting forever)
You can host unlimited websites
The website loads super fast. (Because it is on Google servers).
No website downtime.
Suitable for small businesses that are not very active online.
You don’t have all the flexibility you have on any other hosting platform.
Setup is little tricky
You don’t get any emails or applications.
You can’t host applications like WordPress or Magento. You can only host simple static websites.
Now you know the pros and cons of using Google drive for hosting a website. It’s time for you to decide on the kind of website you want to host. If it is a static website let’s jump into the step by step guide.
Login to your Google Account and open Google Drive.
Create a folder with the name www.yourdomain.com.
Upload your static website to that folder
Now make it public by turning on sharing the link to the public.
