Enterprise-Level Hosting Used by the Big Players
Google Cloud Platform is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Google Cloud Platform is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
Everyone’s heard of Google. But not everyone’s heard of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP)—a suite of cloud services including computing, data storage, data analytics, and machine learning.
Google’s first cloud computing service, App Engine, was founded in 2008 and is a platform for developing and hosting web applications in Google’s managed worldwide data centers. Its website is available in 13 languages, including English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese (simplified and traditional), and Korean.
GCP’s services are used by the likes of Coca-Cola, Twitter, PayPal, and eBay, but if that doesn’t impress you, maybe knowing that it runs on the same infrastructure as Google Search and YouTube will. But should its client base impress you enough to choose GCP? Do they care enough about the little guy to make your website hosting experience worthwhile?
To find out if it’s right for you, I’ll dig into all the pros and cons, touching on the features, pricing, ease of use, and support that come along with GCP’s packages.
