HTTP Load Balancer Static Website

This Terraform Module deploys a HTTP Load Balancer that routes requests to a Google Cloud Storage bucket for static content hosting. Internally the module uses the terraform-google-load-balancer http-load-balancer -module.

Some benefits of serving your static assets, like images or JavaScript files, with a Cloud Load Balancer include:

  • It allows you to configure SSL with a custom domain name.
  • Cloud Load Balancing is integrated with Google Cloud CDN for optimal application and content delivery
  • Cloud Load Balancing will automatically scale without pre-warming as your users and traffic grow

Quick Start

How do I test my website?

This module outputs the IP address of your load balancer website using the load_balancer_ip_address output variable.

If you set var.create_dns_entry to true, then this module will create a DNS A record in Google Domains for your load balancer with the domain name in var.website_domain_name, and you will be able to use that custom domain name to access your bucket instead of the IP address.

How do I control access to my website?

By default, the module makes your website publicly accessible by setting the website bucket default object ACL to "READER:allUsers". For more fine-grained access control, you can set ACLs using the website_acls variable. For example setting to [""] restricts access to only users in the group your-work-group.

You can read more about access control in the official documentation.

How do I configure HTTPS (SSL)?

To enable serving your content through a custom domain over SSL, you can use the enable_ssl and website_domain_name input variables. You will also have to pass a link to an SSL certificate with ssl_certificate input variable.

How do I encrypt the buckets?

Cloud Storage always encrypts your data on the server side, before it is written to disk, at no additional charge. See

How do I handle www + root domains?

If you are using your Cloud Storage bucket for both the www. and root domain of a website (e.g. and, you can create Synthetic records with Subdomain forwarding.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
