    I've been using Google domains for a few years ago now. Not sure how it's a trap. It's piss easy to use, and they hide all your WHOIS information for free (unlike most other hosts who charge).

    For actual hosting, I use Google App Engine's free tier. For lots of sites (or large sites), I'd probably use Linode or Digital Ocean. But, for a portfolio site (or other small site), App Engine all day.

    App Engine does require some technical ability, as it's not a one-click Wordpress kind of solution. But, the daily quotas for free hosting are quite large.
