When you create a website, you essentially create a bunch of different files. These files need to be stored somewhere in order to be accessible on the Internet. Reliable and high-performing web hosting is a crucial part of any successful website.
Lets suppose you've just started making basic projects and you want to showcase your work with others but you can't afford to pay for a hosting service. In such case what you're supposed to do then ?
No need to worry there are quite few FREE web hosting services out there.
In this article we'll come across some of them !
1️⃣ GitHub Pages
GitHub, Inc. is a provider of Internet hosting for software development and version control using Git.
Host your website directly from your GitHub repository.
Just edit, push, and your changes are live.
GitHub Pages is not only good but the easiest way to host your website because you are probably pushing your project to GitHub anyways (if not then start doing it), and after pushing your files to the GitHub repository with a few clicks you can go LIVE with your projects and share it with everyone.

Amazing article but I’ve always some doudt for the choice between Vercel and Netlify… which one are the best for you?!
tbh I always prefer to use GitHub pages over both as much as I can but they are both good, I haven't had much experience with either so its kind of hard to chose between the two.
