It can be done, https://cloud.google.com/dotnet. Don't you think it would be better to just use Azure? https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/develop/net/ 

In any case, all the docs are right there https://cloud.google.com/dotnet/docs/ and you get a free trial. The best option is to just start and post a new question for any specific issues you get.

Thanks for reply, are you saying to use azure than .net? I am not aware of that yet, Do we have have visual studio in google clouds and coding is different there? Please guide me, also you mentioned that The best option is to just start and post a new question for any specific issues you get. Is that mean posting question on google cloud experts?

What I am suggesting is using the azure cloud instead of google because azure is run by Microsoft and will have the most complete support.  The docs are well written too https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/publish-web-app-from-visual-studio

What you should do first, is look into azure more and see if it is the right fit.  The three biggest cloud services now are Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud in order of most used.  The Azure cloud will be more tightly integrated with MS products such as VS.

Is that mean posting question on google cloud experts?
No, I mean post your specific questions here.

All of the services have free trials and you should give each a try.  As you deploy your web app, if you run into problems, create a new questions on EE.  Make sure you spend some time reading the documentation for the cloud service you are using. All three sites have good documentation.

That is really a separate discussion.  I suggest asking a new question and in your new question, provide specific details about your app.

  • What type of site is this?
    • Static site
    • CMS
    • Blog
    • Shopping
    • Web app
    • Api for native apps
  • How many users do you expect on a daily basis for the first year and beyond
  • Are you going to use a database?
    • Which one
    • What are your data expectations
  • Specific security requirements
    • PCI
    • HIPAA
  • Do you need a platform that is self managed or do you want to control?
  • What is your expected monthly budget for the first year, 2nd year, 3rd year and beyond

The more details you can provide, the better answer you will get.  Try and read up on both platforms on your own first so you have some knowledge of the differences when asking your question.  The reason is there are too many unknowns. Just like asking what is the best food? You can't answer that unless you know more information like are you asking for complete meals for your health? Are you looking to add muscle with a lot of activity? Loose weight with little activity? to make  you happy? Do you have any allergies?  .... and on.  Specific details help.
