Guys, after a busy schedule, got some time to bother with you. 😀 Anyone, needed VPS for your development works or for your private stuff…
Here i’m going to show you how to create a VPS freely with Google cloud platform. The word “Free” comes with some limitations. 😉 You can only have this vps for 12 months. If it suits you, then follow me, let’s create our VPS.
Go to https://cloud.google.com and click on TRY IT FREE button at top right corner.
Just fill the form as shown below and click on “ACCEPT & CONTINUE”.
In the page shown below, change the account type to INDIVIDUAL since we are using the vps for personal purposes ATM. Here you need to give your Credit Card number. Do not Worry they will charge 1$ to verify your card & it will be deposited to your card again after the verification process finished.
After few minutes, your new Google cloud platform project will be created for you and you’re welcomed to the google cloud platform console.
In this page, click on the Compute Engine button.
Wait for few minutes, it will setup the compute engine for you in next page.
After compute engine initialized, Create button will be enabled. so click on it.
Now you will be redirected to the New VPS Cofiguration page. Please choose options as your preference and as per your need.
** DO not worry about those red colored texts. Just choose your server type whether it is Linux server or Windows server.
Click on create button & your new VPS is ready. 😉 you can see something like below.
Click on drop down as shown below & set user name accordingly. so you will be prompt with a generated password. please note this password somewhere.
Download RDP file as below.
** RDP files are used by Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services which contains necessary information for a connection to terminal server. Hope you guys know those , if not ignore this post 😀 😀
Double click on downloaded RDP file and connect to your fresh VPS. woooo…
That’s all. we have created our first VPS with Google Cloud platform.
