Is it possible to host WordPress on Google Cloud Platform Free Forever

Is it possible to host WordPress on Google Cloud Free Forever

I’ve been asked this question several times that can I install my WordPress server on Google cloud platform without paying any single penny forever; moreover this requires some check and balance while running your WordPress on GCP.

Not to mention that if you use one micro server instance while installing your WordPress virtual machine; Google simply provides this micro server instance free forever.

Still if you want to get your virtual machine on a dedicated server there are worth having possibilities to do that.

Comparatively, you can host WordPress on Google Cloud free forever which simply requires doing a new installation at the end of each year.

Yes you can simply use Google cloud platform WordPress installation free forever but for that you have to follow some precautions.

  1. Sign up for Google cloud platform

  2. Install WordPress on on Google compute engine using Google Click to deploy

  3. During Google click to deploy WordPress installation select 1 micro server instance with simple boot drive

  4. Assign your project an external IP address

  5. Create your your DNS domain name servers in Google cloud platform

  6. Add your Google cloud platform DNS in Domain registrars DNS settings

  7. Add your newly installed WordPress installation external IP address in in GCP DNS

  8. Monitor your GCP account on regular basis for your free credit limit

  9. When you are one year year of free credit completed comma before and in your free credit backup your website

  10. Create a new Google cloud platform account with new banking details and repeat the process mentioned above.

I want to clear your concept regarding why to use Google click to deploy WordPress installation for your website:

So the idea is like it’s best for small websites and apps and as your website starts growing GCP ads more resources in your instance; meanwhile you pay big when you are growing big.

So you are a Startup and you want to you minimize your cost Google click to deploy WordPress installation is for you. In the meantime if you failed succeeding as a big website, your lost cost would be minimum in exchange of not using dedicated servers or virtual private servers from NameCheap, Godaddy, hostgator or other hosting companies.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to
    get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so
    I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
