How to Host your Webpages on Google Drive

If you want to host your webpages quickly but don't have any web sever to host, then google drive is a greate alternative. You can use Google Drive to host your basic websites or even complex javascript based web app like angularJs, backbone, etc. You may publish any kind of static contents on your website including HTML pages, images, CSS, icons, audio and video files.

Steps to be followed:

  1. Create a folder in google drive.

Tips: Google Drives serves your website over HTTPS and thus can be be used for Facebook apps hosting, since Facebook requires that custom pages are only served over secure HTTP.

 

 

Note : You can't use Google Drive for dynamic web pages generated by PHP scripts and etc.
