How to host websites for free?


I started learning web development 3 months ago and I created a couple of applications.

I want to host my websites online, but there are so many services that I don’t know where to start.

What I’m looking for is a service that offers a free plan where I can host my front-end and full-stack projects.

I’ve heard that you can host front-end websites on GitHub pages. I wasn’t sure if this is the recommended way to host websites, or if there’s a better free service.

For full-stack applications, I tried using Render’s free plan. However, my website spins down after 15 minutes of inactivity and it takes a couple of minutes to spin back up when it receives a request.

I want to show my applications to employers without having to take minutes to load the webpage. Is there another free alternative to host a full-stack application that offers a faster load time?
