Have you ever wondered how to host web pages, make them public and have them synchronized with your local hard drive? The answer is Google Drive!

From now you can do so and simpy share maybe templates, proposal to your clients and use it as a personal portfolio which works locally if you are using Google Drive for Desktop or online with a public URL.

How do you get that?

Easy, just create a folder on you Google Drive folder called for example “WebSite”.

Make it public by right-clicking on the folder, select “Share” and select the option “Public on the Web”

Share in Google Drive

Open one of the HTML pages, preferably the home, click on “Preview” and then grab the URL of the page opened.
