Cost of Managed Google Cloud Website & WordPress Hosting

To answer the question of what is the cost of hosting websites (or WordPress) on Google Cloud; I wrote this pricing guide on Google’s Cloudways partner.

For quick & easy deployment to Google’s Compute Engine servers.

Google Cloud Hosting Price Guide

Google Cloud & Pricing Made Simple

The easiest way to host any kinds of web applications from custom websites to WordPress and other CMS is to use a managed Google Cloud hosting environment from their Cloudways partner; with simple pay-as-you-go pricing structure.

Hosting websites on Google Cloud costs from $33.18/month with 1.70GB of memory and 1 shared CPU; $73.50/month with 3.75GB of memory and 1 virtual CPU; from $138.52/month with 7.5GB of memory and 1 virtual CPUs on all of their US based Compute Engine servers (full price list below).

Goot to know:

  • Each account includes a free trial so that you can easily test website deployment on Google Cloud without any commitments.
  • The server size price is based on 4GB of storage (2GB of general web storage, & 2GB of database storage) as well as 2GB of monthly traffic.
  • You only pay for the resources used so cost may vary; you can sign up to get access to cost calculator to get detailed estimates on any combination.
  • The managed cloud hosting environment is preconfigured according to the CMS of your choice; including WordPress. Or simply choose the “PHP Stack” environment if you wish to have a clean website hosting environment to start with.
  • To migrate old WordPress websites to the cloud; it’s recommended to first deploy a preconfigured WordPress application and use their WordPress Migration Plugin to automatically transfer data over to the new server.
