You can now create sites in Google Drive, but it's just a nice trick, not a full-fledged feature. To get started, create a new folder, right-click the folder and use the "share" feature to make the folder public. All the files of the site you want to create will be placed inside this folder.

Unfortunately, you can't create the HTML, JS and CSS files in Google Drive using the default apps, so you need install a third-party app like Drive Notepad, Neutron Drive or create these files using a native text editor or HTML editor. Make sure you have all the required files, including a file named index.html. When you upload the files to the folder you've just created, disable the conversion option.

This is a post about how to get free web hosting by using a loophole.

Can't you do the same from google sites? Wouldn't you get disk space, hosting and editing tools?

Just asking ...

web hosting is so cheap, why would you go to the trouble of hosting files this way?

read the first word of this post's title

Make sure you keep a backup of your site! I imagine they will close this loophole one of these days, knowing Google it could take a few years, and you could lose your info.

Very nice loophole though! Wonder how big of a site you could run without Google taking notice.

Hmmm... clever.
But, does this violate any TOS?

Same question here...

Google monitors its resources pretty closely and if it's not already a TOS violation they could and would easily change that. Wouldn't take very long with even one notable offender.
