Hosting a Website on Google Cloud Platform | Free Hosting



I’m going over how to set up and host a website on the free tier of Google Cloud Platform. Never pay for hosting again when it can be free! Timestamps:

  1. great video, however after everything is set up, I tried installing a WordPress theme and it prompted an ftp login stuff. had no clue what to put in the Hostname, FTP Username and FTP Password

  2. My goodness ChrisT. I never thought that this would be that easy. Been dealing w/ shared host companies w/ poor servcies for year. But this i have total control. Open a new world for me and it wont be for word press. Great job on vids. Fun, Good Pace, and added humor. Thanks a bunch and happily subscribed and will be following.

  3. 2:02 no they use their own servers as its against google clouds terms. It also costs a lot of money for cPanel and you need CentOS or CloudLinuxOS for cPanel (google doesn't offer those os's)

  4. this video is impossible to follow , so many adverts due to too many timestamps , clicked skip ad more than 20 times before finishing 8:26 crazy. The insane advertising revenue has made YT unusable for things like this. Gave up in the end.

  5. I got stuck on "GRANT ALL ON wordpress.* TO 'wordpressuser' IDENTIFIED BY 'Secure1234!';". mySQL came back with an error in syntax. Couldn't ever resolve it so I came to the comments here to see if anyone else had the problem but I see that it looks like Chris hasn't ever responded to any of the questions here. Too bad…I almost learned something. As my dad had told me many times when I was a child…son, there's nothing free in life, everything has a cost. But the service is free, at least initially and for the first several hundred hours as of this writing. After that they will start billing from what I can tell. All said it was an interesting exercise and I learned a few things so for that I'm grateful.

  6. Quite straightforward really !
    it would be better if you wait a couple of seconds before pressing enter – it often scrolls out of sight the command and stopping the video at the exact split second may be a challenge; turning your video to a computer game for testing reflexes – [not my favourite game] 🙂
