I also switched my personal website to Hugo a few months ago after having tried different other solutions like WordPress, Blogger, Grav, etc.. Grav was also ok, but I love the fact that my website is just HTML. No maintenance at all required, every server works, etc....

I host it on Firebase Hosting, so with just one command:


hugo && firebase -deploy

my website is generated and deployed in less than ten seconds :) I love it.

That’s awesome! How is Firebase? Is it a good experience? I’ve thought about using it before.

Firebase is awesome. It is very easy to set up, highly configurable in case you want to do something special, and deploying is just a command, so there is no need for FTP or whatever else. Speed optimization is done by default. I love not having to manage a server.

Up to 10Gb, it is free. For more, you have to pay and it is pretty expensive. So, in case you are going to have a lot of traffic or your website is just too heavy, maybe it is not the best solution.
