Host web pages with Google Drive
« on: February 01, 2015, 03:25:15 PM »
I have read you can host web pages fro free using Google Drive. Here is a link to the instructions for doing this:

https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2881970?hl=en

But I cannot seen to get it to work. The last two steps seem a bit ambiguous. I have tried several combinations of what it might mean but none work. Anyone successfully done this?

Cheers

Very interesting Ian! Do you think it is possible to assign a domain to this or is it only some sort of a "public server"? could save a lot of money..

EDIT: just noticed that php is not supported. so this is a deal breaker to me

As you say, it does not support php and in an earlier incarnarnation it supported linked pages within a folder, This can still be done with a work around and some people have come up with google scripts to automate this. Clearly OK for a small number of static pges but not for dynamic content.

With data moving to the cloud I wonder if other storage providers will start to add web hosting to their packages.  know amazon does with their paid service but free web hosting is always attractive,
