Host WordPress on Google Cloud Platform for FREE

Host WordPress on Google Cloud Platform for FREE



THERE IS A PLAYLIST OF 12 LESSONS THAT ARE FAR MORE COMPREHENSIVE THAN THIS. SEE HOW A FRESH INSTALL, ELEMENTOR & YOAST = 100 FOR 4 SCORE ON WEB.DEV.

Welcome to Google Acadamy UK Channel. We are not a division or affiliated with Google. It is our Hobbysession! We run our entire Admin on G Suite (£4.14 per user, per month). Our website is free for life (unless we start getting more than 1,000 visitors then we’ll happily ‘BEEF’ up our machine.

ALL SSH COMMANDS AT THE BOTTOM – BE SURE TO JUST REMOVE GOOGLEACADEMY.UK WITH YOUR DOMAIN

Video 1 in this playlist covers:

* Create a project in GCP (Google Cloud Platform)
* Deploy WordPress
* Choose type and location of Virtual Machine
* Create DNS Zone
* Change Nameservers at Namecheap (other hosts will be similar)
* Generate FREE SSL that auto-renews every 30 days

Video 2:
* Set up FTP (FileZilla)
* Edit wp-config.php to define HTTPS and increase WP Memory to 256M

Video 3:
* Set-up Post SMTP to configure Mailer

Video 4 (in production)
* Snapshot (Back-up and restore)

Video 5 (in production)
In this video we cover the different ways to offload your images. We go through setting-up the standard GCS bucket to a https Load Balanced Bucket distributed across Google Network Edge Locations (posh name for CDN)
* Offloading media to Google Cloud Storage and CDN (GCS ) – http bucket
* Offloading media to GCS – https bucket

We are now ready to get back to the Wonderful World of WordPress and you now have the most amazing Easel and Canvas with which to explode your creative juices.

Watch this playlist and subsequent playlists and learn everything you need to know to become the most amazing Web Developer ever (hopefully). Other hosting companies will of course never want you to see this. Why would you pay them once you have learned this?

DO NOT PAY GARDEN VARIETY HOSTS FOR SOMETHING NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THIS. WHY START PAYING AT THE GET-GO? DOES IT NOT MAKE MORE SENSE TO: LEARN, BUILD, LAUNCH WITHOUT PAYING £££$$$ PER MONTH?

Any questions/comments/feedback I will try to get back at you in the most timely manner.

As always, stay safe and embrace the Love of GCP & WP my friends..

Regards from Ramsgate, United Kingdom.
