View Full Version : Google Drive

Heads up if anyone (like me) is using Google Drive to host files - They are shutting down web hosting from Google Drive at the end of this month.

For me, it's a bit of a problem as I've stored all of my images for my stories, competitions and downloads in there!

Can't wait to re-upload everything elsewhere and then go through the tedious task of re-linking everything :doh:


Hello from Google,

We announced last year that we’re deprecating web hosting in Google Drive for users and developers. Our records show that you might have used this feature to publish a webpage or serve other web assets.

On Aug 31, 2016, we will discontinue serving content via googledrive.com/host/[id] and the webpages will not be accessible anymore.

As an alternative to web hosting in Drive, we recommend:

Blogger—An easy and free way to host websites.
Firebase Hosting— An alternative if you’re using the web-hosting feature to serve static webpages with items on Drive.
If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact Google Support.
