Do-It-Yourself Hosting Static Website at Google Cloud

For a while I hosted my small static website using Dropbox (see here). But recently i started to see performance issues and finally also connection reset errors (see here for more details).

I decided to take action and experiment with the Google Cloud platform. Once i passed the mental issue of creating an account there and providing a method of payment, i found the following tutorial:

How to Host a Static Website

The instructions were fairly easy to follow and in a matter of minutes the new website was up and running.

So far from performance and stability it is nothing like what i had before. In other words, it is dam fast and i have seen no error so far.

For now I’m on their trial, but assuming i understand everything correctly and since the size of the website is small and the amount of traffic is also small, this should be a freebie for ever. Time will tell and i will share.
