    Google Web Hosting?

    Does Google themselves offer any type of web hosting? I know they recently came out now offer free DNS services, but I was just wondering if they offer any types of hosting?

    I bilieve they do (I know they offer apps with domains that you can setup), but not sure if it's good or bad.

    The DNS service offered by Google is unlike what hosting companies provide usually.

    Exactly, it is a public dns server, you can't store your zone file there like you do in hosting.

    About Sites.Google.com I don't think you need to pay for that and you don't get acesse to a control panel most people use like cPanel. I think its somethig like a script that is hosting it. like freewebs script.

    I think that bluehost is one of the best for web design hosting. I've had them for 5 years now and host 5 different websites on there. I tried 1 and 1 when it first came out but never used it since. bluehost has an OK interface. Its not the best but it works for me.

    My opinion if Google is a Search Engine not web hosting

    Google web hosting is basically a site builder, they do not offer web hosting specifically.

    I dont think they would offer it, or if they did, it wouldn't at a good level.

    Yes, they have about 10+ Datacenters, but they are under staffed and wouldn't be able to cope with the work load of all the hosting + the services they offer at the moment.

    Doubtfully.

    Google is not a customer service company. I sent a inquiry to their Google adwords department using their online form and have yet to hear back from them (5 business days latter)

    Hosting and Google, even given their large presence, would not go hand and hand unless they entirely restructured their company.

    It doesn't mean they can't hire someone who's got he ability to turn that around, hire and train the necessary staff etc. I'm not too sure it's something they want to do though. They've got more profitable areas to focus on.

  21. I think google is going to do that

    If Google offers hosting, then surely that gives sites hosted by Google an advantage. They could give their own sites the advanatage in Google's results. I know they can do what they want in theory, but they are supposed to be the world's biggest search engine who people trust to produce fair results.
