Welcome to Solarplexus
I just setup this website using the Google Cloud Platform and was surprised how cheap and easy it was. If you are interested in the nuts and bolts of it, below are the tutorials I followed.
Chris clearly steps you through setting up a Server hosted in the cloud and shortly thereafter *bam*, you have a website. Chris says free hosting forever… but the reality is about $4/month after the first year of free credit is used up.
2. Follow this article by One page Zen and your site has https:// for free.
https:// typically requires paying for an SSL certificate and having IT Ninja abilities, but that step was a breeze too.
The hardest and most time consuming part is configuring the WordPress look and feel, so being familiar with the platform helps.
