What can I do for free hosting

Tue, 2017 December 05 at 11:41

Here are some options I've thought about for free hosting:

  • Azure App Service (I have $50 per month in credit)

    Pros

    • Nice server side backend that can run ASP, Node, Python, and Java, plus probably others
    • Decent control panel
    • Can scp or ftp into the filesystem, plus git watched to deploy your site from git.
    Cons
    • No SSL support at the tier I would be wiling to go to.

  • Google Firebase Hosting

    Pros

    • Simple, static hosting
    • Could be used with a client-side framework to integrate with other Firebase tools
    • SSL suport by default
    Cons
    • No access to the filesystem; no ftp, scp, or git
    • Static files only
