I have some low-traffic static websites to host. As an alternative to hosting them on my own or self-managed web servers (eg AWS, Google Cloud, or Digial Ocean machines running Apache or Nginx), I'm considering using Google Cloud Storage:
- it seems to support that use case pretty well
- it's way cheaper: eg if I serve 1K visitors at 1Mb of data each, that's 1GB of data served + 1MB of data hosted = $0.026 (per GB per month) * $0.001 (GB hosted) = $0.00026 per month. Even if I'm off with a factor of 1000 in my calculations, it's still <1$ (see pricing calculator on the right hand side).
The only thing I wonder about is performance, hence my question:
Has anybody hosted static websites with Google Cloud Store and can share feedback or knows some I can test the speed of?
