Serverless basic means that you don't care about the server. You write a function (Azure), or a lambda (aws), and the provider handle the server for you.

It just means that the templates are not being rendered on the server but rather on the front end by doing an Ajax call to the server and then fill in the data with JS.
So it's serverless ... with a server :)
And of course the website still has to be hosted on a server as well.
The serverless name makes no sense at all.
Even if you host it on aws or firebase it still acts as a server.
