Hosting Google Cloud Platform - $300 Credit, 12 Months

Posting this here for anyone unfamiliar with GCP. They give you $300 of credit to use on their entire platform, good for 12 months. A credit or debit card is required, however you will not be billed for any services unless you upgrade from the trial account. As long as you're not doing anything super illegal, you should have no problem using them. I've hosted IPS communities, game servers, and everything in between with them, and I did it all for free.

You hosted game servers and websites with them? Isn't there some sort of limit like user cap or page views cap?

Negative. You just get $300 USD credited to your account that expires 12 months after signing up. I normally use it to spool up a couple VPS instances with Ubuntu 16.04. There are limits on how many CPU cores and how much RAM you can allocate to one instance, as well as how many static IPs you can reserve per "region", but the limits on CPU and RAM per instance are 8 cores and 56 GB.

It's $24.67 a month for 1 vCPU with 3.75 GB of memory and 10GB disk.  Although you can get 2 vCPUs with 4 GB of memory and 80GB SSD disk for $20 a month, Google gives you that free $300.

$24.67 * 12 months = $296.04

Of course, this is a nice way to start off a website or server and can always upgrade the VM if needed.
