I have received notification from Google that we have 'hosted webpages in Drive' and that this service will be removed next year.

IMPORTANT: Deprecation of web hosting in Drive

Hello Administrators,

We recently announced that beginning Aug 31, 2015, we are deprecating web hosting in Google Drive for users and developers. Our records show that users in your organization have hosted webpages with Drive. You can continue to use this feature for a year, but on Aug 31, 2016, we will discontinue serving content via googledrive.com/host/doc id.

This is Google's post about it;


I am at a loss as to what they are talking about! Can anyone lay it out in teacher speak for me?

Thanks in advance

    I took it to mean that if you had web pages for a website stored in Google Drive that they would no longer work.

    I hope that that is what it means any way.

    Thank you for asking the question as it had me stumped as well.

    Would be keen to know what it meant too.

    Thanks Allanah,

    We have "public on the web" drive folders embeded on our school website (made with Google Sites).

    Maybe this is what they are talking about? I hope not as we store all of our notices though this method!
