Hi,

I need a small form to be submitted whenever a particular page is opened, I am wondering if it's okay to use google app engine or any other option that's free?

keeping in mind, I only need few kb of storage, and only one file there, which will be surely loaded for less than 100 times a month so 1 mb storage / 100 mb or even 1 mb bandwidth would be fine but 100% / max uptime needed.

I am not aware of google quotas and ease of use, so need suggestions.

Try openshift.com for free PHP hosting.

You could do Google, too, but it's still technically a beta, so there's a small risk of things changing on you.

Take a look of the On-Demand Instance in Amazon AWS. You can estimate your monthly bill

Like I said, you can use Google App Engine, but it's in beta. It's all up to you whether or not you want to put your application on a beta version of a platform.

Aside from that, I'd just suggest googling for free php hosting.

gr8gonzo, there are tons and tons of free php hosting, what I am looking here is reliability, as I just need to host a trigger script that has to be available 100% of the time, although it is expected that the trigger would b hit only few times a month, but whenever it happens, I want it to be error-free and available.

Just a thought... You might want to read the Google terms of service carefully.  Anything and everything you submit through the form grants the unlimited, fully-transferable, non-exclusive right to Google to use the data in any way they see fit.  If you're OK with giving Google that freedom with your data, then Google may be OK for your needs.

FWIW, I have never had any trouble at all with a Google Beta service of any kind.  And at the same time I would never advise anyone to trust a Beta-anything under any circumstances.

There are quite a few valid answers here - it's not really a difficult question. At its core, he was asking if he could use Google App Engine, and I confirmed that in #40591846
